(From the publisher):
At the height of the war, Henry meets Keiko Okabe, a young Japanese American student, at the exclusive Rainer Elementary. They forge a friendship-and an innocent love-that transcends the long-standing prejudices of their Old World ancestors. After Keiko and her family are evacuated to the internment camps, she and Henry are left with only the hope that the war will end and that their promise to each other will be kept.
