In Light of December: A Story of Japanese Internment
Andrew Hayes Williams, author
“America is under attack.” With those words, life would change forever. Before December 1941, Yoshi Yamaguchi thought nothing could be lousier than being seventeen. He hated high school, his crush didn’t notice him, and his only future was working at his family’s grocery store. But after Japan attacked Pearl Harbor and the United States entered World War II, the Yamaguchis were told they would be forced to “relocate.” What would the Manzanar internment camp be like? What awaited them behind the barbed wire fence? Yoshi didn’t know, but soon, he would be forced to make the most difficult decision of his life.
