This is the book Farewell to Manzanar. For those who may have never read it or even heard of it for that matter, it's a memoir. It was written by a girl named Jeanne Wakatsuki, it's a memoir about how her and her family lived in California during WWII and how her family were sent to Manzanar Internment camp along with all the other Japanese citizens for being suspected spies. It's a very good book. I thouroughly enjoyed reading it in high school and I thoroughly enjoyed reading it a second time, so if you like memoirs, you may like this one. In the book, at the beginning it has a glossary of terms because there are words mentioned in here people amy not know the meaning of.
