Sylvia & Aki

By: by Winifred Conkling

BOOK TALK

 

Two different girls.  Two different lives.  Yet, connected.   When Aki and her family are sent to an internment camp during WWII, Sylvia and her family move into their farm home until they can return.  With racial tensions at a high, these two girls soon realize that not only do their differences separate them, but these same differences join them together, too.  Take a glimpse at two girls—one Japanese-American and one Mexican-American—as they take a journey that will change the history of the United States forever.
