Kathleen Recommends:

Paper Wishes by Lois Sepahban

I’m part of a 2016 debut author group called The Sweet Sixteens. I was lucky to read many fantastic ARCs of fellow members. One ARC, PAPER WISHES by Lois Sepahban described how a ten- year-old Japanese American girl comes to term with her family being interned after the bombing of Pearl Harbor. Her journey and how she heals her heart, resonated with me. I have always loved historical fiction especially if it involves Japan or Japanese heritage.

 

Just A Drop Of Water by Kerry O’Malley Cerra

Just a Drop of Water is by a fellow Sky Pony author, fellow #MGGetsReal founder, and a good friend- Kerry O’Malley Cerra. The triumph and strength of the friendship between two boys despite different cultures, is a message that is also needed today.

Weedflower by Cynthia Kadohata

It was the first book of hers that I had read and the first I read about Japanese internment that wasn’t nonfiction. I was overjoyed to read about a main character that was Japanese American, like me. Cynthia Kadohata is also one of my favorite authors.
