In this follow-up to his acclaimed "A Boy at War," Mazer explores what loyalty, friendship, and patriotism mean during World War II.
From the Publisher:
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.
"WHAT ABOUT WHAT THEY DID TO MY FATHER?...

THE JAPS KILLED HIM!"

Adam Pelko witnessed something horrible: the sinking of the USS Arizona during the attack on Pearl Harbor -- with his father aboard. Since then, Adam and his mother and sister have moved to California, where they are trying to rebuild their lives.

But no matter where Adam goes, he can't get away from the effects of the war. His best friend, Davi, has asked for help. Davi is Japanese American, and his father has been arrested, taken to Manzanar, a Japanese internment camp.

Adam isn't sure what to do. If he goes to Manzanar and starts asking questions, he could be risking his own life. But can he simply do nothing and risk losing Davi's friendship forever? Are Davi, his father, and all the other Japanese Americans taken from their homes responsible for what happened at Pearl Harbor?

In this riveting follow-up to his acclaimed book A Boy at War, Harry Mazer explores questions of friendship and loyalty against the backdrop of World War II, a time when boys had to grow up fast.

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.
