Booktalk: In the summer of 1965, Holly and her cousin Ivy discover family secrets no one has spoken of since World War II involving a terrifying accident, their Uncle Jesse’s death in a Japanese Internment camp, and a boy named Kiyo.
Snippet: “What is a Japanese camp, Gigi?” I hear my own voice come out in a little squeak.
Gigi turned around to look at me. “Oh my Lord, Holly. I forgot you were here. I shouldn’t be talking like this.” But she turned back to Randy and started talking again.
