This Pushcart nominated story takes place in Arkansas during World War II. When Jubie Lee Franklin meets Sachiko Kimura, they find though their skin color is different, they have something in common.
In this Pushcart nominated story, Jubie Lee Franklin watches as hundreds of Japanese Americans get off the train in her small town in Arkansas. She's never seen people who look like they do, and she's surprised when the white folk start calling them names. After all, she figured only Negroes were called ugly names. But though their skin colors are different, Jubie befriends Sachiko Kimura, and they learn they have plenty in common.
