Gasa Gasa Girl Goes to Camp: A Nisei Youth Behind a World War II Fence

Item # 151450.


By Lily Yuriko Nakai Havey. Foreword by Cherstin Lyon.

In this creative memoir, Lily Havey combines storytelling, watercolor, and personal photographs to describe how a ten-year-old girl grew into a teenager inside in two Japanese American internment camps during World War II. They reveal the recollected lives of her mother and father in Japan and then America, where they began their arranged marriage and had two children. These stories of love, loss, and discovery recall a girl balanced precariously between childhood and adolescence. In turns funny, wrenching, touching, and biting but consistently engrossing, they elucidate the daily challenges of life in the camp.
