Description: The oldest of six children, Bernadette (Bernie) Root is joining her parents and siblings at Kadena Air Force Base on Okinawa the summer after her freshman year at college where, having temporarily forgotten that she is the daughter of Major Mason Patrick Root, a child whose every action could get her father transferred, in trouble, or permanently assigned to a desk job, she has joined Damsels in Distress, women against the war. But in the year since she's seen them her family seems as drastically changed as she is. Her mother, formerly the family's vital center, full of energy and fun, sleeps all the time, and her siblings, particularly her beautiful sister and rival, Kit, are growing up too fast.

As the summer progresses and Bernie tries to unravel what's happened to her family, memories of an earlier tour abroad, in Japan in the 50s, and of her friend and nurse Fumiko, once loved family member, now never mentioned, begin to surface. And when Bernie wins a dance contest to tour Japan's military bases with a "real" show biz producer, she finds Fumiko and uncovers the surprising secret destroying her family's happiness.

Often laugh-out-loud funny, The Yokota Officers Club is also a profound story of family love and of the tragic consequences of cross-cultural misunderstanding.
