    [synopsis] => * NATIONAL BOOK AWARD FINALIST * PRINTZ HONOR BOOK * WALTER HONOR BOOK * From New York Times best-selling and acclaimed author Traci Chee comes We Are Not Free, the collective account of a tight-knit group of young Nisei, second-generation Japanese American citizens, whose lives are irrevocably changed by the mass U.S. incarcerations of World War II.   Fourteen teens who have grown up together in Japantown, San Francisco.   Fourteen teens who form a community and a family, as interconnected as they are conflicted.   Fourteen teens whose lives are turned upside down when over 100,000 people of Japanese ancestry are removed from their homes and forced into desolate incarceration camps.   In a world that seems determined to hate them, these young Nisei must rally together as racism and injustice threaten to pull them apart. 
	"[We Are Not Free] should become required curriculum reading on a shameful and relevant chapter in US history." 
	★ "A compelling and transformative story of a tragic period in American history....Each voice is powerful, evoking raw emotions of fear, anger, resentment, uncertainty, grief, pride, and love....An unforgettable must-read.​ 
	"A compelling and transformative story of a tragic period in American history…Each voice is powerful, evoking raw emotions….An unforgettable must-read.​" 
	"The novel may be fiction, but it will be hard for readers not to fall deep into the harsh realities these teens face…Chee's words are a lot to take in, but necessary and beautiful all the same." 
	"A brilliant and intimate portrayal…Nuanced and unforgettable characters will serve to enlighten readers about this devastating and shameful piece of America's past."
