Time Period: July 1944 - Thanksgiving 1945As the Second World War grinds on, eleven-year-old Laura Edwards hopes and prays for an American victory. Inside her, though, another battle is raging: Originally suspicious and resentful of a Japanese-American classmate, Laura begins to admire the girl's quiet strength in the face of persecution. When Laura learns that the girl's father fights for the U.S. Army in Europe, she comes to realize the dangers of judging solely by appearances.Using actual historical events to tell a compelling fictional story, Laura's Victory is perfect for eight- to twelve-year-old girls.
