Review
  • Grades 9-12 In 1940s San Francisco, Italian American Evalina Cassano falls in love with Japanese American Taichi Hamasaki. Interracial marriage is illegal in California, but they still hope to get married one day. But three months after the attack on Pearl Harbor, racism and hatred for the Japanese heightens as America enters WWII. Taichi and other Japanese Americans are sent to internment camps across the nation. Evalina and Taichi must both hold on to their love and beliefs if they hope to survive and build a life together. Morrill produces a historical novel that blends devastating true events with lifelike fictional characters as it brings history to life. Similar to Kathy Kacer's The Sound of Freedom (2018), Morrill's story takes place during WWII and highlights the U.S. internment of Japanese Americans. Told in Evalina's and Taichi's alternating voices, readers get a firsthand look at both characters' worlds and perceive the struggles of the Japanese Americans during WWII. -- Savannah Patterson (Reviewed 2/15/2019) (Booklist, vol 115, number 12)
  • Gr 9 Up—It's 1942, and in the wake of the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor, California teenagers Evalina Cassano and Taichi Hamisaki fight for their right to love each other. Evalina is the daughter of Italian parents who own an Italian restaurant, and Taichi is the son of Japanese parents who provide the produce for the Cassanos' restaurant. Evalina and Taichi vow to love each other and never give up. However, as Taichi settles into life at Manzanar Relocation Center, in the shadow of Mt. Whitney, and Evalina prepares for her first year at Berkeley, the obstacles become more than they can handle. Japanese is peppered throughout, and the author's extensive research helps to create a rich and engaging atmosphere that will transport readers. Both Evalina and Taichi develop as their stories unfold, and readers get to see them mature and grow as their circumstances evolve. VERDICT A solid pick for anyone who enjoys historical fiction or romantic tales of love, loss, and reunion. Recommended for general purchase.—Maryjean Bakaletz, Morris County Library, Whippany, NJ --Maryjean Bakaletz (Reviewed 03/01/2019) (School Library Journal, vol 65, issue 2, p116)
