The boys are one-quarter Japanese on their mother's side and are homeschooled by both parents. A history buff, Lake has read about the Japanese American incarceration in a history book and asked his father whether bachan, the boys' great-grandmother in Sacramento, California, had gone to a concentration camp. The question inspires the father to create a solar-powered time machine that deposits the three boys in a strawberry field in Salinas, California, in 1942, where they meet their Kimiko Matsumoto, a girl of about twelve, whom they soon deduce is their bachan. Visible only to Kimiko (and not to the rest of her family), the boys observe her packing up her things and go with her on the train to the\n <a class=\"encyc notrg\" href=\"https://encyclopedia.densho.org/wiki/Amache_(Granada)\" title=\"Amache (Granada)\">\n  Amache\n </a>\n , Colorado, concentration camp, where they observe living conditions in the camp, before their father brings them back to the present. The book includes discussion questions, but no bibliography or additional historical information.\n</p>\n<p>\n Author Alana Terry is a writer of Christian fiction and children's books, including two others in the\n <i>\n  Solar-Powered History\n </i>\n series. Like the unnamed mother in\n <i>\n  What, No Sushi?\n </i>\n , Terry lives in Alaska, is of half-Japanese descent, and homeschools her three boys.\n</p>\n<p>\n Terry does not include a lot of detail about the roundup, journey, and incarceration, though what is included in generally accurate. However, the actual Japanese American residents of Salinas were sent first to the\n <a class=\"encyc notrg\" href=\"https://encyclopedia.densho.org/wiki/Salinas_(detention_facility)\" title=\"Salinas (detention facility)\">\n  Salinas Assembly Center\n </a>\n , with nearly all going on to the\n <a class=\"encyc notrg\" href=\"https://encyclopedia.densho.org/wiki/Poston_(Colorado_River)\" title=\"Poston (Colorado River)\">\n  Poston\n </a>\n , Arizona, concentration camp, with the rest going to\n <a class=\"encyc notrg\" href=\"https://encyclopedia.densho.org/wiki/Tule_Lake\" title=\"Tule Lake\">\n  Tule Lake\n </a>\n . There is also a scene during the first night at Amache in which the boys see Kenji, Kimiko's oldest brother, argue with a friend and announce that he will volunteer for the army to demonstrate his loyalty.
