Sachiko: A Nagasaki Bomb Survivor's Story, by Caren Stelson


This is a heart wrenching, honest, beautiful, informative, eye opening, gut punch of a book. And it's a work of nonfiction. It's all true. Sachiko's story is amazing and horrible and sad and uplifting and I feel honored to have been able to read it in this book. What a unique and beautiful book, both in story and in visual presence. The images, charts, maps, etc also really elevate this book.
I would have loved more of the historical information and details. I would love for this book (which is written for kids and teens, though is just as moving and informative for adults) to be expanded and added to for a full history/biography/memoir.
