The book opens as seven-year-old Emi, her mother and sister prepare to leave their home in Berkeley, California, for <a class=\"encyc notrg\" href=\"/wiki/Tanforan_(detention_facility)\" title=\"Tanforan (detention facility)\">Tanforan</a>, a racetrack that has been converted into a temporary camp for Japanese Americans. Emi's best friend, Laurie Madison, brings her a gold bracelet as a farewell gift, and as a reminder of the value of their friendship. Emi vows that she will never take it off, but as she helps clean out the filthy horse stable that will serve has her family's \"apartment,\" the gold chain slips off her wrist and is lost. At first, she is desolate, but Emi eventually realizes that she does not need the bracelet to remember her friend, just as she does not need a photo to remember her father (who has been sent to a separate prisoner-of-war camp in Montana). \n</p><p>The last book Uchida wrote that touched on the Japanese American incarceration, <i>The Bracelet</i> was published posthumously on 1993. It originated as a short story published in 1976 in <i>The Scribner Anthology for Young People</i>.\n</p><p>In 2001, <i>The Bracelet</i> was the subject of a <a class=\"encyc rg\" href=\"/wiki/The_Bracelet_(film)\" title=\"The Bracelet (film)\">short educational video</a> in 2001 that was a part of the <i>Once Upon a Camp</i> series produced by the Japanese American National Museum and the UCLA Asian American Studies Center.\n</p><p>Reviewers praised both the book's universality of theme and specificity of details as well as Yardley's drawings.\n</p>\n<div id=\"authorByline\"><b>Authored by <a class=\"encyc notrg\" href=\"/wiki/Patricia_Wakida\" title=\"Patricia Wakida\">Patricia Wakida</a> and <a class=\"encyc notrg\" href=\"/wiki/Brian_Niiya\" title=\"Brian Niiya\">Brian Niiya</a></b></div>\n<div id=\"citationAuthor\" style=\"display:none;\">Wakida, Patricia and Niiya, Brian</div>\n<p>Might also like: <i><a class=\"encyc rg\" href=\"/wiki/A_Place_Where_Sunflowers_Grow_(book)\" title=\"A Place Where Sunflowers Grow (book)\">A Place Where Sunflowers Grow</a></i> by Amy Lee-Tai;<i> <a class=\"encyc rg\" href=\"/wiki/Baseball_Saved_Us_(book)\" title=\"Baseball Saved Us (book)\">Baseball Saved Us</a></i> by Ken Mochizuki; <i><a class=\"encyc rg\" href=\"/wiki/Blue_Jay_in_the_Desert_(book)\" title=\"Blue Jay in the Desert (book)\">Blue Jay in the Desert</a></i> by Marlene Shigekawa\n</p>\n<div class=\"section\" id=\"For_More_Information\"><h2><span class=\"mw-headline\" id=\"For_More_Information\">For More Information</span></h2><div class=\"section_content\">\n<p>Publisher website: <a class=\"external free offsite\" href=\"\" rel=\"nofollow\"></a>\n</p><p>Harada, Violet H. \"Breaking the Silence: Sharing the Japanese American Internment Experience with Adolescent Readers.\" <i>Journal of Adolescent &amp; Adult Literacy</i> 39.8 (May 1996): 630–37.\n</p><p>———. “Caught Between Two Worlds: Themes of Family, Community, and Ethnic Identity in Yoshiko Uchida’s Works for Children.” <i>Children’s Literature in Education</i> 29.1 (Mar. 1998): 19–30.\n</p><p>Inagawa, Machiko. \"Japanese American Experiences in Internment Camps during World War II as Represented by Children's and Adolescent Literature.\" Ph.D. dissertation, University of Arizona, 2007.\n</p><p>Potucek, Susan C. \"Using Children's Literature to Make History Come Alive: Discussing Prejudice and the Japanese Internment.\" <i>The History Teacher</i> 28.4 (Aug. 1995): 567–71.\n</p><p>Teorey, Matthew. \"Untangling Barbed Wire Attitudes: Internment Literature for Young Adults.\" <i>Children's Literature Association Quarterly</i> 33.3 (Fall 2008): 227–45.\n</p>\n</div></div><div class=\"section\" id=\"Reviews\"><h2><span class=\"mw-headline\" id=\"Reviews\">Reviews</span></h2><div class=\"section_content\">\n<p>Hale, Robert D. \"Musings.\" <i>Horn Book Magazine</i> 69.6 (November 1993): 770.
