This War We're In

Renee Pawlish

From the author of the Noah Winter Adventure Series!

This War We're In is a story about friends and family, forgiveness and redemption. Ten-year-old Bobby Klocker questions why his Japanese friend Richard is treated differently than other kids. When Bobby’s older brother, Edward the bully, accuses Richard for something Bobby and Edward did, Bobby must wrestle with doing what is right versus facing his brother’s wrath, though he is ultimately determined to defend Richard.

Set in the fall of 1943, This War We're In is about a boy learning about prejudice and the atrocities of war during the tumultuous times of World War Two. Intertwined in the story is the forced internment of the Japanese, and a little-read-about piece of history, the United States housing of German prisoners of war.
