    Takei, George, 1937-, author.

    "A stunning graphic memoir recounting actor/author/activist George Takei's childhood imprisoned within American concentration camps during World War II. Experience the forces that shaped an American icon -- and America itself -- in this gripping tale of courage, country, loyalty, and love. George Takei has captured hearts and minds worldwide with his captivating stage presence and outspoken commitment to equal rights. But long before he braved new frontiers in Star Trek, he woke up as a four-year-old boy to find his own birth country at war with his father's -- and their entire family forced from their home into an uncertain future. In 1942, at the order of President Franklin D. Roosevelt, every person of Japanese descent on the west coast was rounded up and shipped to one of ten 'relocation centers', hundreds or thousands of miles from home, where they would be held for years under armed guard. They Called Us Enemy is Takei's firsthand account of those years behind barbed wire, the joys and terrors of growing up under legalized racism, his mother's hard choices, his father's faith in democracy, and the way those experiences planted the seeds for his astonishing future. What is American? Who gets to decide? When the world is against you, what can one person do?"--Provided by publisher.

    Raum, Elizabeth, author.

    "Vivid storytelling and authentic dialogue bring American history to life and place readers in the shoes of real people who experienced some of the most pivotal moments of the American Revolution. Unrest was growing in the thirteen colonies but Massachusetts was a hotbed of revolt, especially in light of the Boston Tea Party. The British king and Parliament were considering various ways to quell the rebellion, leading to the Intolerable Acts. The colonists hold the First and Second Continental Congresses, war breaks out, and the Declaration of Independence is written. Readers dive into this history and make choices throughout that affect the outcome of the story. Scenarios are developed and lead up to choices, which the readers take to control the direction of the character and story. This format creates a unique and powerful experience for readers as they face the challenges and decisions that real people encountered."-- Provided by publisher.
