Thirteen-year-old Satomi Baker is used to being different. It is 1939 and being half-white, half-Japanese on the west coast of California gets you noticed. Although she has never felt she quite fits in, her striking looks have caught the eye of the most popular boy at school. When war is declared, Satomi's father Aaron is sent to the base at Pearl Harbor. He never returns. Now the community that has tolerated its foreign residents for decades suddenly turns on them, and along with thousands of other Japanese-American citizens Satomi and her mother are sent to a brutal labour camp in the wilderness. At Manzanar Satomi learns what it takes to survive, who she can trust, and what it means to be American. But it will be years before she will discover who she really is under the surface of her skin. A Girl Like You is her story, and the riveting and moving story of a lost generation.

Previously working as a photographer, an antique dealer and a dress designer, Lindley has an eye for beautiful detail and this quality seeps into A Girl Like You, a stunning work of fiction

Notă biografică

Maureen Lindley was born in Berkshire and grew up in Scotland. She was trained as a psychotherapist and also worked as a photographer, antique dealer and a dress designer before writing her first book, The Private Papers of Eastern Jewel. Maureen lives in the Wye valley on the Welsh borders with her husband.


Here is a fresh, surprising new examination of Manzanar, a shameful time in our country's history. Lindley's novel is so involving and original that I plan to recommend it to everyone I know
A sweeping coming-of-age novel
Powerful and compassionate, this is fascinating view on a dark period of American history
An empathetic story, delicately told, tailor-made for reading groups
