Sadako and the Thousand Paper Cranes – 47

Thursday, March 11th, 2010

Sadako and the Thousand Paper Cranes By Eleanor Coerr – I like this book because it tells a story from the other perspective. A young girl remembers the Atom Bomb hitting her city Hiroshima, and the people dying. She starts having dizzy spells and has to go int he hospital for the doctors to run some test. She makes friends with Kenji while she is receiving treatment. Sadako is working on folding one thousand paper cranes because it is said that the gods will grant one wish to anyone who folds those cranes.
