Read from April 12 to 13, 2011
I got the tissues ready when I started to read this book. This isn't a history book, it's a capture of an afternoon that we are still dealing with. People are still living out of schools and community league halls, they are still identifying bodies, and the brave workers at the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant are still risking their lives to keep us safe. My heart still hurts for my adopted country.
It wasn't as hard as I thought it would be to read this book. I only resorted to tissues once, when reading the poignant story Positive. The art and writing combine to send a massive message of hope, which Japan desperately needs right now.
