On't come back until you've killed an American soldierRay a young American Marine has just landed on Okinawa He doesn't know what to expect or if he'll make it out alive He just knows that the enemy is everywhereHideki and Ray each fight their way across the island surviving heart pound. Grateful to scholasticinc for this free book🌟⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️💫5 for this moving novel by #AlanGratz As with all of Gratz’s historical novels I was on the edge of my seat for the entire book I was deeply connected to the characters and I learned about history The Battle of Okinawa one of the final battles of WWII before the atomic bomb dropped on Japan is not anything I have ever studied in depth It was heart wrenching to learn how Okinawans were treated as pawns in a larger war There is nothing pretty about war and Gratz portrays that fact from both the young American soldier perspective Ray and the even younger Okinawan civilian Hideki Gratz includes a 6 page author’s note at the end that gives further context for the Battle of Okinawa as well as mainland Japanese attitudes toward the Okinawans Bottom line like most things it’s complicated I can’t wait for my Gratz obsessed students to read this in the fall Must buy book of course Grades 4🌟#bookstagram #book #reading #bibliophile #bookworm #bookaholic #booknerd #bookgram #librarian #librariansfollowlibrarians #librariansofinstagram #booklove #booktography #bookstagramfeature #bookish #bookaddict #booknerdigans #booknerd #ilovereading #instabook #futurereadylibs #ISTElibs #TLChat
