This book explores the hardships in the Japanese-American internment camps during WWII and the enduring spirit of the people who were held there.
During World War II, Japanese Americans were sent to internment camps. A Diamond in the Desert is the story of a young baseball player who ends up in one such camp, situated on an Indian reservation in Arizona.
There weren't many happy moments happening in this book. On the plus side, it has plenty of baseball for baseball lovers.
I work in Youth Services, and like to read all kinds of books, although nonfiction is not my favorite. I spend a good portion of my time rooting for the Reds with my basset hound sleeping in my lap. I have been known to ride my scooter, watch Tim Burton movies and sing silly songs.
