Ten-year old Mandy McMichael doesn't fit in at her new school in Seattle. She's very smart, but the "in crowd" teases her so much she decides to play dumb to quiet their taunts. Then there's her friendship with a Japanese family- and in 1939, with the world on the brink of war, hers is not a popular position. Using actual historical events to tell a compelling fictional story, Mandy the Outsider is a poignant tale of a girl balancing her desire for acceptance with her need to do right, and to be who God wants her to be.
