AuthorHouse, 2002 - 268 pages
Sayo, Born Into Two Cultures is a gripping autobiography about one woman and her family's struggle to survive. Told in her own voice, Sayo is a Japanese girl that was born and raised in the United States. Things for Sayo are like any other American girl until she moves to Japan and World War II begins. Sayo and her family endure bombings, near starvation, and tragedy as they struggle to survive in a war-torn Japan.
Sayo returns to the United States years later, only to discover that things are not always as they were in the past. She recounts experiences of discrimination and great change, as her children and family, who have never seen the United States, fight a new battle to become "American".
This true story of Sayo and her family shows a side of World War II that is rarely shown: what life was like for the Japanese people. Her story will touch your heart and give the reader a greater understanding of not only the Japanese culture, but of the human struggle to survive.
