Book by Reece, Colleen L.

I had tears when I came to the last few pages of "Last page in the diary". The book does show what people are capable of doing to others and what a human being can handle.

Talk about Last Page in the Diary (Spring Break)

The Last Page in a Diary is the first historical fiction I have ever read concerning internment camps during World War II. The author chronicles the evils of placing Japanese Americans in camps during World War II. She does an outstanding job relating the story in a simple way that any child reading the story will understand what went on so many years ago.

On page eleven, the author made a profound statement that made me stop to think about the evils of prejudice.

"When there's prejudice -- innocent people often get hurt." This statement rings so true to me since I have been a victim of racial prejudice, and I know how it can destroy a person, if he or she is not strong. Luckily, Yoshi (Mike) is a remarkable young lady who gets her strength from God, and that strength helps her endure the hatred lashed at her and her family.

A second statement found on page twenty-three that made me stop to think:
"Don't blame the kids too much. Their parents teach them the hatred and prejudice." Like the old adage -- the apple does not fall far from the tree. People that are prejudiced had to learn it from home. Sad but very true, the only thing one can do is to find a way to not let the hatred turn you into a bitter person.

I also enjoyed the Christian message the author tried to relay to the readers. Yoshi (Mike) learned to give all her cares to God even though kids from her school ridiculed and made her life difficult because she is Japanese American.
Patricia Kelly (Pat) on the other hand blames God for Yoshi's troubles. She went through a time where she loses trust in God, but in the end comes to see that God is still with her.

I applaud the author for writing such an important book. The only way to avoid the same mistakes of history is for authors to write and keep on writing these stories repeatedly. In my opinion, it is a good idea for today's children to read about injustices in our past.

Last Page in the Diary

In Last Page In The Diary, Reece addresses the controversial internment of Japanese Americans during World War II. Mike and her family are home after their internment and Pat is so excited to have her best friend back again. Except it isn't that easy. Prejudice against Japanese Americans is still prevalent and Mike and her family experience a lot of persecution as they try to rebuild their lives. Pat asks a lot of questions of her family and of God about why injustice happens and why it can't simply be made okay again. She struggles between choosing what is right and doing what is popular. In the end, Pat realizes her friendship with Mike is worth far more important and valuable than being popular and she digs deep to set a good example to her classmates. I especially enjoyed seeing Mike's conviction and honor. She's a lovely girl that any tween could look up too.

It is so important for today's children to read about injustices in our history and Reece does a good job telling the story in a way that will make a child see not only how wrong it was, but how easily it can happen. The only way for our society to avoid making these mistakes in the future is to tell these stories again and again.
Lately some movies, books and discussions have been about racial prejudice, especially before and including the Civil Rights Movement. Last Page in the Diary by Colleen L. Reece is about another kind of racial prejudice that many young people may not even be aware of; the extreme fear and hatred of Japanese people in America during and after World War Two.
This book is the inspiring story of a girl whose former best friend returns from a Japanese interment camp. Pat soon finds out if she hangs out with that friend she'll be ostracized herself. So what can she do?
The book portrays both the historical time and the relationships between the characters realistically and has a very strong Christian message. There are still many forms of prejudice in the world and reading Last Page in the Diary should help girls deal with the kinds they encounter. They'll also enjoy reading it for the good story.
Last Page in the Diary is a look at two girls' relationship that is affected by World War II and the Japanese Internment camps. Pat loses her trust in God when her friend, "Mike" (which is a nickname--this is a girl) and her family have to go to an internment camp. This novel is about how the girls figure out their friendship and life in general when Mike returns and is still a victim of racism. It is an easy read for kids, and the Christian message is refreshing since so many authors are almost AFRAID to include it.
