"WHAT ABOUT WHAT THEY DID TO MY FATHER?...

THE JAPS KILLED HIM!"

Adam Pelko witnessed something horrible: the sinking of the USS "Arizona" during the attack on Pearl Harbor -- with his father aboard. Since then, Adam and his mother and sister have moved to California, where they are trying to rebuild their lives.

But no matter where Adam goes, he can't get away from the effects of the war. His best friend, Davi, has asked for help. Davi is Japanese American, and his father has been arrested, taken to Manzanar, a Japanese internment camp.

Adam isn't sure what to do. If he goes to Manzanar and starts asking questions, he could be risking his own life. But can he simply do nothing and risk losing Davi's friendship forever? Are Davi, his father, and all the other Japanese Americans taken from their homes responsible for what happened at Pearl Harbor?

In this riveting follow-up to his acclaimed book "A Boy at War," Harry Mazer explores questions of friendship and loyalty against the backdrop of World War II, a time when boys had to grow up fast.

It was a good read about a boy who goes to war fighting the Japanese. The book is part of a series (which I did not know at the time when I ordered it) I wish I had known it was a part of a series so I could have ordered the other books as well, but still a good read. Enjoyed it!

Book review: A Boy No More
I recommend this book for grades 6-7, It takes place in Hawaii and Bakersfield, California. Adam is forced to move out Hawaii and into California, because the tragic accident that happened to his dad. It was hard for Adam, Bea his little sister and his mom to leave Hawaii. So when Adam left he had to leave his Japanese best friend Davi behind. Everybody in Adam’s family know that his dad died besides Bea, because they think she is not old enough yet to know and she would be heartbroken So whenever Bea asks when is daddy going to be home they just say he is still serving the country. Adam writes to his friend Davi every once in a while, but one of the letters that Davi sent back was if he could help him find his father. Adam accepted the challenge and sent out on a long journey to find Davi’s father, but Adams mom does not agree with Adams idea of leaving on a search for Davi’s dad. I rate this book a 4 out of 5 stars.
