Fish for Jimmy: Inspired by One Family’s Experience in a Japanese American Internment Camp

by Katie Yamasaki

For two boys in a Japanese-American family, everything changed when Japan bombed Pearl Harbor and the United States went to war. With the family forced to leave their home and go to an internment camp, Jimmy loses his appetite. Older brother Taro takes matters into his own hands and, night after night, sneaks out of the camp, and catches fresh fish for Jimmy to help make him strong again.

This affecting tale of courage and love is an adaptation of the author’s true family story.
