HS     Grades 8+     Rating:     5

Stephanie Morrill, author of Lost Girl of Astor Street, pens another young adult historical novel, this one is set during World War II, featuring the relationship of a Japanese American boy and an Italian American girl.  Evalina Cassano falls in love with Taichi Hamasaki amidst the anti-Japanese feelings arising across the US, following the attack on bombing on Pearl Harbor.

Within These Lines is a thoughtful story of love in the face of intolerance and prejudice during wartime.
