Review

"They Called Us Enemy is truly beautiful -- moving, thoughtful, important, engaging, and stunningly rendered. I am so excited to see this book's impact on the world." -- Jacqueline Woodson, National Ambassador for Young People's Literature and National Book Award-winning author of Brown Girl Dreaming

"George Takei's story reveals the important lessons of the WWII Japanese American Incarceration that still need to be learned today. They Called Us Enemy is a compelling must-read for all ages." -- Karen Korematsu, Founder and Executive Director, Fred T. Korematsu Institute

"Moving and layered... Giving a personal view into difficult history, [They Called Us Enemy] is a testament to hope and tenacity in the face of adversity." -- Publishers Weekly (starred review)

"A compelling blend of nostalgia and outrage... this approachable, well-wrought graphic memoir is important reading, particularly in today's political climate." -- Booklist (starred review)

"This evocative memoir shares stories of the nation's past, draws heartbreaking parallels to the present, and serves as a cautionary tale for the future."-- School Library Journal (starred review)

"Emotionally staggering... They Called Us Enemy also inspires readers to engage through democracy to insist that we treat fellow human beings with fairness and dignity." -- Amazon's "Best Books of the Month"

"Riveting... Takei has evolved into an increasingly powerful voice for oppressed communities, and Enemy finds him at peak moral clarity -- an unflinching force in these divisive times." -- The Washington Post

"A cogent reminder that liberty and justice is not always for all, They Called Us Enemy explores a dark episode of America's past as it dives into the heart of a pop culture icon." -- Foreword Reviews' "Indie Books That'll Blow You Away"

"The creators are gifted storytellers, and Takei has a great story to tell, full of unexpected twists. And as compelling as it is, it is also inspirational, a story of ordinary people and the choices they faced in an extraordinary time." -- ICv2

"A tale of triumph over adversity." -- BBC America

Book Description
