Reviews
"Kuzki and translator Balistrieri create a compelling and age-appropriate account of Hiroshima on August 6, 1945, and its aftermath." --Booklist

"This gut-wrenching tale of the Hiroshima bombing from a Japanese perspective is a tender and honest exploration of empathy in the aftermath of unimaginable pain and grief." --School Library Journal

"Kuzki, a the child of [Hiroshima] bombing survivors herself, presents an intimate look at the effects of the [Hiroshima] bomb a generation later, and how such an event has long-lasting impact on the community to which it happened." --The Bulletin

"Even though they are fictional, the stories of loss, regret, loneliness, and grief are powerful and emotional." --Kirkus Reviews

"A tale about wartime trauma and how art and story can channel empathy, memory, and remembrance." --The Horn Book
