Reviews

"A slice of American history beautifully told by three young Americans coming of age in a turbulent time." --Jodi Thomas, New York Times bestselling author
"What distinguished The Red Kimono ... is its combination of raw emotional vulnerability and modern relevance. Morrill deftly exploits these dynamics--and the competing themes of race, grief, love and betrayal--in a compelling portrait of the Japanese experience at the height of America's 'Greatest Generation.'" --Shelf Awareness
"This story of a Japanese family uprooted and forced to live in a bleak World War II internment camp gives human faces to one of the shabbiest chapters in U.S. history. Told from the viewpoint of an engaging Japanese girl, The Red Kimono tells it all--the bitterness and pain as well as the joy and pride and patriotism of a people too resilient to be beaten by racism. The Red Kimono touches my heart." --Sandra Dallas, New York Times best selling author of Tallgrass and True Sisters
