Reviews:

1/From a seventeen year old girl’s perspective, this book encourages self expression and community support. It teaches not to judge a hero by their race, religion or station. Unlikely heroes carry this story. The ending will remain in my thoughts for years.

2/This is a must read book for all generations. The US is made up of all people. we need to cherish each other’s differences and not be judgemental. May we do better and be better

3/Our review for Internment breaks down into two categories: Pros and Cons.
Pros: With this book, the author captures the gasoline fire that is racism disguised as patriotism and fanned by the false fears of those who aspire for a greatness that includes the likes of only those who share their sameness. The events of Internment take place within a few months of the president in the book being elected, showing just how quickly an exclusionary narrative can be adopted and excepted, even by those who know first hand that they are not true. The author also does a great job at showing that even in the pits of evil, there will always be people who let their conscience win, even at the expense of their own lives. Good doesn’t always prevail, but it isn’t afraid to give its all to try.

Cons: We struggled to find, Laila, the protagonist likable. She knows that she’s living in a powder keg, evidenced by the quickly worsening situation of her family, but she continues to stupidly set flames to it for no conceivable reason. She is constantly doing things to bring attention to her family in the name of a boyfriend we, the reader, have so little interaction with, we’re left wondering what’s the point. Laila doesn’t behave like someone who is experiencing oppression firsthand, and that shows in her actions and words. Granted, she is a teenager, but speaking as someone who has lived their entire life as a non- “model-minority,” her actions just don’t jell with what someone in her position would realistically do. Her versions of sneaky were so overt, we were surprised that certain actions in the book didn’t take place sooner. Another con is that although the author highlighted the plight of Japanese Americans who were forced into internment camps, she COMPLETELY glanced over African Americans who were among the first to be forced into and kept in what could only be described as America’s first internment camps, plantations. Even in the afterward chronicling America’s history with internment camps and forced exclusion, what happened to us was not mentioned, despite our forced stays lasting longer than a few years, our releases coming at a higher price, and our reparations never being given. For a book about racial oppression, segregation, and forced encampment, we felt as though the author was remiss for leaving out the first incidents of internment in America from the protagonist’s consciousness, and from her own notes to the reader.
