Abstract:
"1944. Crystal City, Texas. Margot gave up everything to keep her family together. And now they are together -- imprisoned in the Crystal City family internment camp, worlds away from their German-American farm community in Iowa. But the camp is changing them, day by day and piece by piece. As Margot watches her mother's health deteriorate and her loving, patriotic father turn into a man who fraternizes with Nazis, she wonders what more it will take to keep her family whole. Haruko tries to maintain a facade of serenity in Crystal City, making friends at high school and shopping in the general store. Yet Haruko feels anything but serene, suffocated by dust, heat, and her deepest fears: that her own father is hiding something from her, and that her soldier brother, fighting in the Japanese-American unit of the US Army, is hiding something from everyone. After a dust storm throws Haruko and Margot together, the two strike up an unlikely, secret friendship. Their time together becomes a gift and a refuge -- but in a desert prison camp that presents a pale imitation of life, can anything so real and fragile survive?"-- Provided by publisher.
