  • Rosa takes a chance: Ten-year-old Mexican American Rosa Sanchez wants an education more than anything, but when her teachers leave Texas in search of a better life, how will her dream come true?
  • Mandy the outsider: In 1939, in Seattle, Washington, as the Japanese invasion of China increases general hostility towards Japanese Americans, nine-year-old Mandy finds the adjustment to her new school as well as the prejudice against her Asian friends extremely difficult to bear
  • Jennie's war: In 1944, ten-year-old Jennie Fleming is doing what she can to help win the war -- she's hoeing weeds in her "Victory Garden" on the "home front."
