Following the precedent of Octavia Butler's Kindred, local graphic novelist Kiku Hughes creates an arresting book about the lasting effects of forced internment on Japanese-American families. Hughes' muted color palette and simple, effective style create a timeless yet immediate mood that forces readers to contend with the fact that history isn't just limited to the past. A great tool for educators looking for an accessible entry point for discussions about West Coast internment camps and their continued import. Pair with a short research project into Tsuru for Solidarity for a tie-in to current events.
