Summary:

During World War II, a family finds life turned upside-down when the government opens a Japanese internment camp in their small Colorado town. After a young girl is murdered, all eyes turn on the newcomers. Rennie has just turned thirteen and until this time, life has pretty much been predictable and fair. But the winds of change are coming, and with them, a shift in her perspective and a discovery of secrets that can destroy even the most sacred things. Part thriller, part historical novel, Tallgrass by Sandra Dallas is a riveting exploration of the darkest-and best-parts of the human heart.

    I've been reading a lot about WWII and this was an interesting adjunct to the non-fiction histories of the Japanese conflict. Based loosely on an actual internship camp in Colorado, the story examines all the attitudes of the time toward the Japanese Americans interned there.

    I was leaning between a three and a four here. I settled on four, because it is simply better than a 3. It isn't "middle" it is better. One thing that makes it so is narration, which is excellent. But from characters to story, from plot to message, it really is a good read. I'd have loved to go 3.5, because it was a little long, but beyond that this is a winner.
