This personal account by George Takei is heartfelt and powerful. This book is full of hope and funny moments, in addition to the more expected difficult parts of this series of events. Certainly a book that is timely given events in 2019 and the discussion of camps that are being used for “illegal” immigrants. I strongly suggest pairing this book with Takei’s powerful Ted Talk on his experiences - https://youtu.be/LeBKBFAPwNc . Takei shows us the power and dangers of democracy and why we must be involved citizens.
