Overview

Like other Japanese-American families in the Beacon Hill area of Seattle in the early 1970s, 16-year-old Dan Inagaki's parents expect him to be an example of the "model minority." But unlike Dan's older brother, with his 4.0 GPA and college scholarship, Dan is tired of being called "Oriental" by his teachers, and sick of feeling invisible. Dan's growing self-hatred threatens his struggle to claim an identity. Sharing his anger and confusion are his best friends, Jerry Ito, Eddie Kanagae, and Frank Ishimoto. Together, these Beacon Hill Boys fall into a spiral of rebellion that is all too all-American.
