George Omi with Garrett Omi

“The day Japan bombed Pearl Harbor, Minoru Omi's whole life was turned upside down. Racial tensions ran high -- his father, a Japanese immigrant, is questioned by the FBI, and eventually his family is uprooted from their lives in San Francisco, and forcibly relocated to desolate Rohwer, Arkansas. He and his little sister leave behind their school and friends, while their immigrant parents give up their hard-won dry cleaning business” (From publisher). Many thanks to ESCOM and Book Passage!
