Note: 
A refugee with his family in Seattle, fourteen year old Ben can't forget the horrors of Nazi Germany. Incidents of prejudice, including the deportation of Japanese citizens, convince him that Seattle is no better than Germany and he decides to escape to Canada alone. Once there, he learns that Canada is no haven either and is forced to face his fears. Not one of Matas's best books, The Whirlwind is long-winded in places and very somber.
