Reader recommendation: The Train to Crystal City

Monitor readers share their favorite book picks.

I knew that Japanese-Americans were sent to internment camps during World War II, but until I read The Train to Crystal City, by Jan Jarboe Russell, I was unaware that German- and Italian-American families were also interned. Everyone should read this book!
