The book is based around the attack of Pearl Harbor, which was one of the factors that triggered the Japanese internment camps in the united states. The book tells the story of one Japanese family faced with family separation, due to others actions.
The book focuses on a little Japanese girl, Jeanne, and her family is put through the worst times, being separated by internment camps. Her family members are changed by these camps, and it tears her family apart.
The family believes that it is unfair for them to be put into camps, considering their children have never even been to Japan, so it is like guilty by association. The book seems to imply that a lot of japanese people were blamed for actions they did not commit.
