In this stunning graphic memoir, actor/author/activist George Takei recounts the childhood years he spent imprisoned in Japanese American internment camps during World War II.
His visceral childhood memories—growing up under a form of legalized racism, his mother’s hard choices, his father’s faith in democracy, and the way those experiences planted the seeds for his future—are placed in historical context and augmented by present-day reflections. "This evocative memoir shares stories of the nation’s past, draws heartbreaking parallels to the present, and serves as a cautionary tale for the future," says School Library Journal.
