Synopsis

Barbed Wire Baseball by Marissa Moss

This is a true story set in the Japanese internment camps of WWII. As a young boy, Kenichi Zenimura (Zeni) knows that he wants to be a baseball player, even though everyone tells him he's too small. He grows up to be a successful player, playing with Babe Ruth and Lou Gehrig. But when the Japanese attack Pearl Harbor in 1941 Zeni, his wife and two sons are sent to one of several internment camps (more than 110,000 were imprisoned). Once there, Zeni and his family bring the game of baseball to the camp, along with a sense of hope.

About the Author

Marissa Moss has been writing stories and drawing pictures to go with them for as long as she can remember. She sent her first book to publishers when she was nine, and although it wasn’t published, she never gave up the dream of seeing her words and pictures in print. “I loved the power words gave me. If I was mad at my older sister, I would invent someone just like her in my story and make bad things happen to that character. Then, to prove I could be nice, I’d rescue that character and make a happy ending.
