When Can We Go Back to America?

By Barry Denenberg

From Barry Denenberg, the award-winning author of Ali: An American Champion, comes an engaging new novel that narrates the oral history of Japanese incarceration during World War II, from the perspective of the young people affected. It’s difficult to believe it happened here, in the Land of the Free: After the bombing of Pearl Harbor in 1941, the United States government imprisoned more than one hundred thousand Japanese-American citizens living on the Pacific Coast. This oral history of those affected by incarceration, including the stories of many children and young people, illuminates the frightening reality of this dark period in American history.

Now more than ever, these voices will resonate with readers confronted with questions on immigration and citizenship, and what it means to be an American.
