Tallgrass by Sandra Dallas

During World War II, a family finds life turned upside down when the government opens a Japanese interment camp in their small Colorado town. After a young girl is murdered, all eyes (and suspicions) turn to the newcomers, the interlopers, the strangers.

This is her town as Rennie Stroud has never seen it before. She has just turned thirteen and, until this time, life has pretty much been what her father told her it should be: predictable and fair. But now the winds of change are coming and with them, a shift in her perspective.  And Rennie will discover secrets that destroy even the most sacred things.

Part thriller, part historical novel, Tallgrass is a riveting exploration of the darkest—and best—parts of the human heart.

5 stars (Rate PG – could be read by an older teen)
