If you've been reading children's lit for a while, think Jane Yolen's Devil's Arithmetic meets Japanese Internment. While occasionally relying a bit heavily on telling rather than showing, the "modern day teen magically time traveling to moment in history" trope was really effective at making clear that historical trauma has far reaching multi-generational ramifications. In this case, the lack of interest in talking about Internment camps within Japanese families leading to a lack of understanding amongst decedents of these families of what their forbears went through.
