MUSIC FOR ALICE
New York : Houghton Mifflin,
IL 3-6. RL 4.6
began her life as a migrant worker in California. When she married,
she and her husband moved to Seattle and opened a business. But then
World War II broke out and all the Japanese Americans living on the west
coast were forced to leave their homes and were relocated away from the
coast. The government was afraid that they held allegiance
to Japan and would try to help the Japanese war effort. Alice and
Mark were given the opportunity to work on a farm rather than move to the
camp. They jumped at the chance. This is the story of Alice
who believed that hard work would bring success.
