Annotation In A BOY AT WAR, 14-year-old Adam's father died aboard his ship during the Pearl Harbor attack. In this fast-paced sequel, Adam has since relocated to Bakersfield, California, with his mother and sister. He gets a letter from his Japanese-American friend Davi requesting assistance in finding Davi's father, who's been locked up in a Japanese internment camp in California. Now Adam must wrestle with whether or not he should help a family originally from an enemy country during a time of war, and cope with his mother's insistence that he not get involved. An epilogue provides a Pacific timeline for the war in 1942 and information about the Japanese internment camps.
Editors Note After his father is killed in the attack on Pearl Harbor, Adam, his mother, and sister are evacuated from Hawaii to California, where he must deal with his feelings about the war, Japanese internment camps, his father, and his own identity.
