Nine-year-old Michiko Minagawa bids her father good-bye before her birthday celebration. She doesn't know the government has ordered all Japanese-born men out of the province, or that ten days later, her family would join hundreds of Japanese-Canadians on a train to the interior of British Columbia. There are no paved roads, no streetlights and no streetcars, and their house is dirty and drafty. Michiko must face local prejudice, the worst winter in forty years, and her first Christmas without her father. Grades 2-4. 2009.
