Sadako Sasaki was only two when an atom bomb dropped on Hiroshima. She was twelve when she died of leukemia. This is the story of the spirited, brave girl who faced her future with courage.
After several dizzy spells send Hiroshima-born Sadako to the doctor, the budding school track star finds out she has leukemia--known as the "atom bomb disease." But she faces life with spirit and bravery. And a legend says that if she folds 1,000 paper cranes, the gods will grant her wish to be healthy again.
