Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

It is 1946, a year after the bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, and World War II is over. But the U.S. government has decided that further tests of atomic bombs must be conducted. When Bikini Atoll is chosen for the testing site, the inhabitants of the tiny island are told they must relocate for just two years. But sixteen-year-old Sorry Rinamu believes the Americans are lying and that it will never be safe to return. He must find a way to stop the first bomb before it is dropped . . . even if it means risking his own destruction.

     Includes a reader's guide and an author's note.

Synopsis:

A teenager takes the safety of a whole island into his own hands, trying to stop tests of the atomic bomb.

Synopsis:

In 1945, when the Americans liberate the Bikini Atoll from the Japanese, 14-year-old Sorry Rinamu does not realize that the next year he will lead a desperate effort to save his island home from a much more deadly threat, in this long-out-of-print novel by the acclaimed author of "The Cay."
