The War OutsideVerything she can to keep her family whole as her mother's health deteriorates and her rational patriotic father becomes a man who distrusts America and fraternizes with NazisWith everything around them falling apart Margot and Haruko find solace in their growing secret friendship But in a prison the government has deemed full of spies can they trust anyone even each other. Was going to rate this a 3 star until I got to the ending and it left me speechless Did not see the ending coming and it made so much sense to me I like this story because it was something different then what I have ever read about It was about a Japanese American and German American girl whose family are sent to an internment Camp during WW2 It deals a lot with racism friendship family etc

I received an ARC of this book for free from TheNovl in exchange for an honest review Since I received an ARC my uotes from the book are tentative Last month I read a different YA novel about German American internment and was beyond disappointed by it When I saw that TheNovl was offering a chance to read and review this book I jumped at the opportunity Thankfully The War Outside was a million times better than that other book I readThis book was so heart wrenching and emotional There was one incident towards the end that gave me chills and goosebumps I loved the dual perspectives and how well the author put you into each girl’s shoes I also enjoyed the author’s writing style It flowed easily and sucked you into the story I’m glad that the book showed both Japanese American and German American internment I particularly liked that it discussed how being called the enemy was different for each group At one point Haruko tells Margot “I’m so sorrythat your father had to wake up and realize that you had become the enemy overnight But a least you didn’t have to wake up and realize that other Americans had thought of you as an enemy all along” 148 She then explains “the reason this imprisonment is hard to Margot’s father is because they didn’t know yet that this country was unfairThe West Coast Japanese had already given the government their shortwave radios and they had already agreed to their curfew eight PM to six AM but it wasn’t enough it was never enough It was so easy for the government make those rules You can’t hate someone all of a sudden It takes practice It takes a long time” 148 This is an idea that Margot revisits later in the book when imagining what it would be like to go back home to Iowa She ponders “Haruko was right the first time we talked It was not like with the Japanese where entire communities went away With us it was like a scalpel a German here a German there while the rest of the town went about their business” 207 These uotes showcase the idea of how we are not free in America until we’re all free Everyone’s freedom is in jeopardy if one group loses theirs The ending wasWOW It was one of the best endings I’ve read in a while It left you thinking about all that happened between the girls and the motives behind their actions I liked that the author included a note at the end about the history behind the story It is evident that she did a lot of research and tried to make it as accurate as possible Overall this was an amazing and powerful novel whose ending will leave you uestioning it all For book reviews be sure to check out my blog

I loved the premise and parts of this novel felt all too relevant to our current politician climate you know since we’re once again holding families and children in camps in the US which isfucked up But The War Outside never went far enough for me So much of this stayed surface level and I wanted MORE I wanted of the budding romance between our two protagonists insight into daily life in the camp and of an actual plot so there was sufficient tension building to the big reveal which I honestly didn’t like that much Unfortunately this book just didn’t uite deliver for me but I still think it was an important story and I’m glad I read it
