So far from the Bamboo Groze
by Yoko Kawashima Watkins

Review by Bailey Lilac

Recomended age: 12+

This was a very interesting book, and had many helpful historical facts, but it is written like a story. I would reccomend this for ages 9+, but it did have some sections that were not appropriate for younger children. The book is based on Yoko Kawashima's life growing up in Korea durring world war 2, but because Yoko is Japanese, and her father was working for the Japanese army, the Korean soldiers were after Yoko and her family. So, Yoko, her sister, Ko, and their mother set out to Japan when their soldier friend tells them that the Korean soldiers are after them. This has both, happy, and sad times, but of course, it's more sad than happy.
