The Lucky Baseball

Follow Harry Yakamoto in this World War II story as he learns to live through difficult conditions in a Japanese-American internment camp in the latest title in Enslow's Historical Fiction Adventures series. Harry Yakamoto grew up in Seven Cedars, California playing baseball, going to school, and working at his family's restaurant. As a young Japanese American, he faced discrimination daily. But when the Japanese attacked Pearl Harbor in 1941, his life would change forever. Forced to move to a relocation center in the desert of California, Harry and his family have to start a new life behind barbed wire and guarded watchtowers.
