bookshelves: non-fiction-biography
Read in January, 2006

It is a non-fiction book. It is a biography, of which the first two chapters are spent on historial background of the Japanese society, about Sadako. The statue of Sadako can be found in Hiroshima Peace's Park. Memorial Services are held every year at the Hiroshima Peace Park. There are various establishment at the place too.

For the book, I think it is a classic, a must read.

Compared to the novel version, the English is a lot more difficult. Students are required to make a comparison between biography and novel, this is quite demanding as the book is not easy to read for the lower form students.
