The Fences Between Us
The Diary of Piper Davis : [ Seattle, Washington, 1941]Book - 2010
Desperately waiting to learn the fate of her soldier brother who was stationed aboard the Arizona during the attack on Pearl Harbor, Piper struggles with strict rationing and blackouts in her Seattle home before her pastor father moves the family to an internment camp with his Japanese-American congregants. 60,000 first printing.
With this sweeping tale of life on the World War II homefront, Newbery Honor author Kirby Larson brings her incredible talent to the Dear America series. When Pearl Harbor is attacked, America is finally unable to ignore the wars raging in Europe and Asia any longer. And one girl's entire life is about to change when everything she knows is turned on its head. After the devastating attack on Pearl Harbor, where her brother, a navy sailor, is stationed, Piper Davis begins chronicling her compelling journey through one of history's most tragic and unforgettable eras.
Thirteen-year-old Piper Davis records in her diary her experiences beginning in December 1941 when her brother joins the Navy, the United States goes to war, she attempts to document her life through photography, and her father--the pastor for a Japanese Baptist Church in Seattle--follows his congregants to an Idaho internment camp, taking her along with him.
