Home-Front Heroes: The No-No Boys

by Teresa R. Funke

Based on a true story in the winter of 1943...

Fourteen-year-old Tai Shimoda's family has lost everything. Like many other Japanese-Americans at the start of World War II, Tai's family has been forced to leave their home and move to Tule Lake Relocation Center - a desolate camp surrounded by barbed wire in northern California.

Though he misses his home in Sacramento, Tai keeps busy at Tule Lake hanging out with friends and training for the judo tournament. But as tensions in camp rise, Tai's brother, Ben, joins a group that has refused to swear allegiance to the United States. They call themselves the No-Nos. Tai's father calls them Disloyals. Soon Tai must decide what he believes. Will he join his beloved brother and the No-Nos or, like his father, remain true to America?
