We Are Not Free

We Are Not Free by Traci Chee


For fourteen-year-old budding artist Minoru Ito, his two brothers, his friends, and the other members of the Japanese-American community in southern California, the three months since Pearl Harbor was attacked have become a waking nightmare: attacked, spat on, and abused with no way to retaliate--and now things are about to get worse, their lives forever changed by the mass incarcerations in the relocation camps.

Traci Chee, 2020 YPL National Book Award Finalist, reads from WE ARE NOT FREE
