The Book: Dash by Kirby Larson
Dash is a story about the life of Mitsi Kashino when her family is forced into an internment camp during World War II. Mitsi is separated from her home, her classmates and her beloved dog Dash. As her family begins to come apart around her, Mitsi clings to her one connection to the outer world–the letters from the kindly neighbor who is caring for Dash.
