But things are different after he and his mother move to a small town in Utah to stay with his grandparents during WWII. Jay makes friends and earns money working the fields for his well-respected grandfather?but he encounters a problem in Ken, a fellow worker who?s from the nearby Japanese internment camp. Ken?s a Jap. And Jay?s dad, who?s been fighting for the navy out in the Pacific, is missing in action. This moving story about an unlikely friendship deftly addresses themes of prejudice and intolerance, providing readers a glimpse of the past that enlightens the present.
