Description


Based on a true story . . .

Thirteen-year-old Rose Williams has trouble fitting in. Every time her family moves to a new navy base, she wishes she could be more like her fearless brother, Les, and not her usual shy and practical self.

On the Sunday morning of December 7, 1941, Rose hears the roar of low-flying planes. From her front yard she watches as Japanese aircraft attack the US ships and naval base at Pearl Harbor, Hawaii. While her dad rushes into battle, Rose and her mother take cover. Les is nowhere to be found.

Later, with the whole island fearing an enemy invasion, Rose is told to stay inside with the doors locked. But when her friend's Japanese American father is unjustly arrested and a wounded dog shows up on her doorstep, Rose realizes that--scared or not--everyone must be daring in times of war.

Readers, don't miss the last few pages to learn more about the real Rose Williams.
