With "The Invisible Thread" the author has decided to write a work that is a little more personal. In this way, Uchida sets the stage for the reader. Yoshiko grew up as a second generation Japanese-American in California in the 1930s. Born of parents that had both immigrated to the United States separately, Yoshiko was privileged to live in a fairly well-to-do area in Berkley, California.

I purchased a book for my sons school work. He had to write a review on this book, and we could not find it locally. We purchased it through Amazon and it arrived in about a week. It was used, but in great condition and worked well for his report. We are very pleased with our experience.

This book and others like it should be assigned to our school children to show what life was like during a different, less multi-cultural, era in our American past. The shameful incarceration of Japanese Americans during WW2 should never have happened and must never be repeated. This book shows that life and period in detail, as seen through a young girl's eyes.

It shouldn't be out of print. This book tells a story about the history of our country and how we reacted to the Japanese when they invaded Pearl Harbor.

I returned the book because the price on this small used book was outrageously high, more than 4 times it's value on the used book market. I was shocked but Amazon let me send it back and gave me most of what I paid for it. Apparently, it was not a Prime item so I had to pay for shipping.
In addition to her writings about the Japanese and Japanese-American culture, Yoshiko Uchida wrote several fiction books that drew from her experiences as a Japanese American during World War II. The Invisible Thread, written for young adults, is an autobiography that tells of her life before, during her family's internment in a camp in Utah.

Although her parents were Japanese citizens, Yoshi and her sister were born in the United States. They were as American in their speech and culture as the Swedish family next door to them. Yet, because of their appearance, they faced discrimination even before the war. The American government violated the Japanese Americans' constitutional rights when they removed them from their homes. The conditions under which they were forced to live were deplorable.

The author chose not to dwell on the horrors of that period of her life. Although she clearly describes their relocation and the stable and barracks they lived in, her emphasis is more on family life and the positive things they did to keep their lives as normal as possible. She does a fine job of describing her own confusion, her loyalty to her family and friends and her loyalty to the government that betrayed them.

This book is on our local school system's 2005 Summer Reading List. With the current backlash against Arab Americans, this is an important book for children to read. It is only through education and tolerance that we have a hope of avoiding past mistakes.
