" I remember reading this book in elementary school and it was a huge eye opener for me. I believe I was around 8 or 9 years old. I had no idea that Japanese Americans were oppressed and taken out of their homes and placed in internment camps. I remember reading this book and wondering, did this actually happen? This is definitely on the list of books I want to reread. I would highly recommend this book to everyone. " said.

" Touching, engaging story about an eleven year old Japanese American boy and his family in the US during World War II. Gives the reader insight into this under-addressed and shameful episode in American history as well as illustrating the injustice of prejudice. Beautiful language, wonderful haiku! I loved this book both for the historical perspective and the beautiful prose. Highly recommend it for all ages. " said.

" Outstanding fiction, based on fact, on how the country perceived the Japanese living in the United States after the bombing of Pearl Harbor and their life for the next 10 years. Imagine the family next door picked up and sent to live behind barbed wired fences without any having committed any crime but because they were Japanese. Patneaude's deep and sensitive treatment has you cheering and weeping throughout. " said.

" Despite the fact this book is written for young adults, it is remarkably complex with many layers relating to Japanese internment. I found it to be unique and moving. The addition of the haiku poems throughout added to the complexity of the book. There are no stereotypical characters or stories here, and because of that I feel it gives a very insightful view into the Japanese internment experience. " said.

" I liked this book because Pearl Habor and World War two are my favorite thing to learn about. This book reminds me of The Boy at War because that book was about the same thing but it was switched around. The genre of this book is historical fiction because this book is about stuff that could of happened but it dindn't. I rate this book five stars because it was so good any way you put it. Thats why I liked the book. " said.

"Overall, I would give this book 4.5 stars. It seemed to move slowly when I first started to read it, but really picked up once Joe and his family were sent away from their home. One ting that really made me upset, but in a way made me really like the book, was that Mike died in the end. It really sent a true message about war: not everyone gets a happy ending. This made the ending of the book bittersweet, a word that was mentioned a lot throughout the book. Thin Wood Walls is a great book, most likely because of the realities it shows of the affects of World War II." said.

"outstanding historical novel of a young Japanese American boy who is uprooted from his home and sent to an internment camp with his family. beautifully tells the story of the injustice that was brought upon the Japanese in the west during WWII. One of the key things that hit me as an American Soldier was the tasking given to do death notifications into the internment camps of Japanese Soldiers who had given their lives in combat--the contrast was painful to read but and hit close to home for me. well worth the read!" said.

"Thin woood walls gave the point of view of a young Japanese boy and his family being evacuated of their home. The Pearl Harbor attack lead many to believe that ALL Japanese peple to be dangerous. It was able to portray in a clear manner that not people disliked the Japanese Americans because of what their people did. There is a very sad ending along with a heart-warming resolution. I would recommend this to anyone who likes historical fictions or to anyone who just wanted to read a reallygood book." said.
