This book was based on many kids who died or survived in the bombing at hiroshima,Japan. The story tells of a girl who only her and her mother and a few other people survive the bombing and what happens afterword.A very good historical fiction book.

Hiroshima is a book about war between the Americans and Japanese
Hiroshima is a book about war between the Americans and Japanese. So the age for the book for the book is around ten and up. It couldn’t be for eight year olds because I don’t think they are mature enough for this kind of stuff. I think they would be running around saying stuff to Japanese people that would offend them such as “USA bombed you guys we are better than you” I just think that would offend them and so they shouldn’t say stuff and possibly make another war break out. Another thing that I think would be bad is how they 8 year olds shouldn’t be learning about war and how to kill lots of people they should be learning other stuff like Math ,Science , or Language.Was this review helpful?

My favorite part of the book is when the Americans drop the bomb. I think it’s interesting to see how the Japanese react they put a coat on and get under their desk. Afterwards when the bombs hit the girl goes flying across the floor and she hurries and runs to the nearest river and jumps in to cool herself down. The girl does survive, but she does have very bad burns and is very lucky to be living.
I think boys would like this book a lot better than girls would because girls aren’t really in to killing things such as boys are too. Also boys are in to war things and most girls are not. Another thing is that I guess girls could like this book because it’s a very emotional book if you are an emotional person.
