Under The Blood Red Sun is a great book to read if you enjoy history and the effects of war.The story is about a Japenease American boy and how the bombing of Pearl Harbor changes his life. The book shows how fear can cause predjudices toward inocent people. I am not normally into historical novels, but this one kept my attention. I highly recommend reading this book to find out more about Pearl Harbor.

this book was great. I've never really been interested in this subject before, but this book helped me understand the concept of the bombings at Pearl Harbor. Especially since it came from the perspective of a boy my age. 2 thumbs up.

I really liked this book! The book shows what a great friendship is like during Pearl Harbor and World War II. I recommend this book to children through the 4th to 7th grade because the book tells what it was like to live during Pearl Harbor. This book was not only liked, but loved by all the people I recommended it to.

I think that this book was very interesting. I never really like to read about wars and history but this book was informative to see how Japanese children felt during world war 2. I like this book because it was not very gruesome as I expect war novels to be.

Under the Blood Red Sun is a book written my Graham Salisbury, an extraordinary author who wrote many books about life in Hawaii during the 1940¿s. This book is about a 13 year old boy, Tomi, whose life changes after Pearl Harbor is hit by a bomb. Before this, he was just a normal third generation Japanese-American who loved playing baseball with his friends on team Rats. One of the reasons that this book was so interesting was because I could relate somewhat to what Tomi was feeling and going through since my grandpa lived during this time, and loves baseball as well. I tried to imagine how my grandpa might be during this time, and he might have been somewhat like Tomi. I also live in Hawaii and liked finding out how it was like before to live here. I liked in this book, Tomi and his friends have to face difficulties and how some kids these days might react the same, or differently as them. Tomi also acted exactly like how kids these days would act too, like when he was busy with sports (baseball) and hanging out with his friends (Rico, Mose and Billy). It¿s interesting to see how kids through the generations don¿t totally change. This makes a good connection to the readers I think, if they are around their teenage years. I like how Tomi demonstrated courage in some parts when his father was in trouble, which made me think about what I would do in that certain situation. It was also a sad book, since Tomi and his family had to go through many hardships like his grandpa getting taken away, but that¿s what made it suspenseful. This book is like a partly true, but partly fiction book. It gives us an idea of what it was like to be a kid back in the 1940s, but it¿s not a completely true story; just a story that could have definitely have been the case for someone back then. That¿s a pretty good thing because you can get creative on what you say and how you write, since it doesn¿t have to be exactly what happened, but still conveys the main idea. Overall this was a very fascinating book to read, and if you are a Japanese-American living in Hawaii who is looking for a book that keeps you anticipating, then it¿s a must read!

I read this book a few years back and I really enjoyed it. I love books were you get to know the characters really well and this author did a very good job with that. This book had some sad parts but they were written so you could feel the sadness but weren't taken over by it. This book made you feel REAL emotions. Not just those fake emotions you feel with most books because you know that you're supposed to be sad or scared or whatever. I would really recommend this book.
