Gr 5–8—Stone masterly interweaves the stories of Japanese American teens living in U.S. concentration camps and
Japanese adolescents who were secretly charged with manufacturing balloon bombs that were launched at the U.S.
during WWII. With impeccable research and compelling firsthand accounts, this is an incredible story of a miraculous
reconciliation.

There is something about Tanya Lee Stone's writing that I don't like. The tone, I think. When it comes to non-fiction, I like an authoritative, detached perspective from the author. Stone, to my everlasting dismay, subtly editorializes right and left in an overtly feminist "Rah Rah Women!" kind of way. I'm totally pro-woman, but it irks me to see her pushing her perspective when I think she should let the facts speak for themselves. I had this exact same issue with [b:Almost Astronauts|4836780|Almost Astronauts 13 Women Who Dared to Dream|Tanya Lee Stone|https://d.gr-assets.com/books/1320418659s/4836780.jpg|4902013], probably even more so than I do with this Barbie book.

So, yeah, what about Barbie? There are many, many opinions about Barbie filling up the pages here. Most of them came from random people and did not really interest me. I liked the story of the invention of Barbie, but after that I stopped caring. Is Barbie good or bad? There are criticisms for sure, but the overall impression I got is that Stone is pro-Barbie and sees Ruth Handler, Barbie's inventor, as a great female role model. I have a feeling that if Barbie had been invented by a man, Stone would have written a different book.
