Personal ResponseA Boy No More has to be probably one the the best books in this series. The book starts out boring with Adam the main character being in Hawaii.

It talked about what happen to the people that weren't in the army.Plot SummaryThis book talked about Adam and how he was at the Pearl Harbor when the bombs hit.

I didn't like the way Adam was getting mistreated by his classmates, because Adam didn't deserve it.

This was one of my favorite book that have read
This book is really good because it talks about history.
It was just a little too slow for meI didn't feel like much was happening and there seemed to be little character growth. However, for a reluctant reader this book would be a great introduction to the Japanese internment camps.
I thought this book was very interesting. It had a good plot and climax and many detail to support it. I would definitely recommend this book to others.

This book was fine. It was written in a clear and concise way and it was pretty interesting. But it wasn't great. For what it was and what it was about, I personally think it could have packed a much bigger punch. The ending didn't feel like an ending and the book didn't really feel like a plot. It just sort of happened, without making much of an impact or leaving an impression. It wasn't the greatest an I personally think that while it had a lot of potential, it didn't live up to my expectation [...]

A Boy No More By: Harry MazerGood reads reviewBy: Andrew Hartze I read A boy No More for my lit circle book. It was a decent book and I’m glad I got a chance to read it. It’s about a boy named Adam, who is struggling with the loss of his dad, who died at Pearl Harbor. Adam knows that he has to buck up and now be the man of the house. My favorite part of the book was when Adam was being a dork and asked his “friend” if he could kiss her. So I thought that it was odd that he asked to kiss [...]
This book was good but not great. I thought that it had a good story to it but I alwawys thought that there would be more to the whole Pearl Harbor incident rather than him just telling everyone about it. It would have been alot better of a story explanation for them to have started the book with him being at the scene of when that happened. That was the only thing that bugged me throughout the book. Other than that they were very good with story telling and this was definitely a book that I did [...]
I enjoyed reading the historical fiction book "A Boy No More" By: Henry Mazer. This book was about the life for a Japanese American in America in World War II. The life of a 'Jap' in America was not very pleasant. Americans were prejudice against the Japanese. They thought all Japanese Americans were spies and criminals that were spying for the Japanese army, and they wanted to kill them. Even though it was an excellent historically fictional story of a 15 year-old Japanese American who had to t [...]
Title: A Boy No MoreLexile: 530I loved this book because it mainly focused on the friendship between Adam and the friend who he left when he moved from Honolulu, Davi. An example of their unbreakable bond is when Adam receives a letter from Davi stating that his dad, Mr.Mori, was moved to a Japanese interrogation camp and asks him if he can find him. Adam does that.One of my favorite parts is when Adam attempts to find Mr.Mori even through all the hardships he had to go through because that show [...]
I like this book because it told a story of a boy name Adam Pelko who moved from Hawaii to California during WWII after his father died at Pearl Harbor. The story was about someones life who saw Pearl Harbor happen and Adam saw his fathers ship go down and promised himself to live up to his fathers standards and support his mother. Adam moved to a townhouse in Bakersfield, California and decided to get a job to support his mother and help his friends that were put into Jap-Camp. Adam ended up he [...]

This book wasn't like any of the other books I have read recently but it was okay. When I was done with this book and I tried to think back on what happened it seemed a little confusing. When I got into the book while I was reading it it always would change the subject but was still on the main story line too often and too fast. I liked what happened in the book and some of the people in it were inspiring and some not. Also while I was reading it I would have liked it to have more detail like so [...]
I think this book was very emotional and the author did a good job of expressing his feeling and letting his personality show. This book is about a boy named Adam Pelko. His dad is at Pearl harbor when the Japanese attacked. Adam was on the harbor watching as the boat was shot down. His mom wanted to go move with their grandpa. They argued and were all in a terrible mood. They didn't tell little Bea that their father died, everything wasn't going their way.
