Summary "Tells the story of Ralph Lazo, a 17-year-old Mexican American student at Belmont High School in Los Angeles ... Soon after President Franklin D. Roosevelt signs Executive Order 9066, Ralph witnesses the pain and humiliation of his Japanese American friends and their families, forced to sell their belongings and "evacuate" to a concentration camp in a remote California desert. Against the backdrop of the chaotic days when armed soldiers ordered tens of thousands of Japanese Americans to board trains and buses to unknown destinations, Ralph's response remains a rare act of friendship, loyalty and principle in a time of crisis"--Container.
