Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

On the tiny South Pacific island of Saipan, thirteen-year-old Joseph and his half-Japanese cousin Kento practice to become warriors like their ancestors. But in the final months of World War II, their paradise island becomes the stage for one of the bloodiest battles in the Pacific war between America and Japan. Joseph and Kento’s loyalties are tested and they discover, within themselves, what it means to become true warriors.

 

“Intense and powerful reading that avoids bleakness by celebrating family, culture, and a longing for peace.” —Booklist, starred review

Synopsis:

This gripping historical novel is set on the tiny island of Saipan, which the Japanese had long governed, near the end of World War II. Thirteen-year-old Joseph, the son of a local village chief, and his half-Japanese best friend, Kento, have their loyalties tested when U.S. troops arrive and one of the bloodiest battles in the Pacific war is fought. Caught in the crossfire between the Americans and Japanese, the boys learn what it really means to be a warrior. The novel is based on historical facts, and an afterword describes the real-life account of what happened on Saipan—the unimaginable horrors of what is now called Suicide Cliff.
