    My son is reading this for his English class but whenever he put it down I picked it up And was thoroughly engrossed Reading schedule be damned I was completely captivated by the bravery and strength of young Tomi and his Japanese American family and I finished the book uickly Their Hawaiin life wasn't easy but it was manageable and generally good Until Pearl Harbor is bombed There's no denying the deplorable treatment of Japanese Americans during this time but Mr Salisbury balances the bad with baseball and boys sticking together to bring hope and inspiration I don't know what Boy's English class has planned but I assure you I'll be reading about Tomi

    If only all students could have fiction blended with their semi non fiction text books This book grew on me within pages and I found myself savoring it Really people when you're reading a good book and actually put it down you feel like something is missing Like you've left the world of THEMthe characters and setting You find yourself wondering what's happening with them So you grab the book and spin your eyes across the pages For of the good stuff Under the Blood Red sun takes you there The character development and flow from chapter to chapter is absolutely stellar I give this book a thumbs up for middle readers and up This book left me wanting and I especially love the grumpy grandfatherstern and full of wisdom

    I'll never forget that look I realised that what that lady saw wasn't just a boy and his motherWhat she saw was a Japanese boy and his Japanese mother 131You got it wrong mister I said I was born here I live here just like you do And I'm an American Beat it Jap he said Be above it Tomi American I said again He narrowed his eyes but didn't say anything I eased away the feelingstrangevery strange Almost peaceful Spooky feeling peaceful when somebody hates you 241Under the Blood Red Sun tells the story of Tomikazu Tomi Nakaji a young boy of Japanese decent who lives peacefully with his sister immigrant parents and grandfather in Honolulu in 1941 Against the backdrop of the increasingly horrific events of World War II in far off places Tomi and his friends the Rats preoccupy themselves with school baseball and living the everyday life of American boys That is until the events of Pearl Harbor take place and Tomi witnesses the terror of that infamous day alongside having his father sent to a detention facility due to the outbreak of the war for the USThe story by Graham Salisbury is written for an audience of young adults and with that in mind it's not only a fantastic story but a great learning opportunity in the understanding of cross cultural relationships among different communities in a country such as the US even in difficult times such as war Tomi experiences a lot of prejudice but also a lot of support from various people in the book of all backgrounds and it's interesting to read about such complexities that really happened some 70 80 years ago with the Japanese internment camps and compare it to the human rights issues we face today While shameful what happened during WWII is a great learning opportunity and this book helps younger readers in understanding and discussing the why's and how's of the not too distant past through the lens of a young Japanese American boy

    December 7th 1941 The Empire of Japan bombed Pearl Harbor Hawaii 2403 Americans were killed; many wounded I've seen the movie I've heard the stories But I never even imagined the impact of the incident on the Japanese American people After the merciless bombing many of the innocent hardworking Japanese people hoping to find a better life in America were branded as enemy spies and dragged behind bars 'Under The Blood Red Sun' is the story of a young Japanese American boy named 'Tomikazu Nakaji' and how his whole life turned upside down in the blink of an eye There are books that make me cry And then there are books that make me cry every few chapters and this book is one of the latter This book like most of the historical fictions concerning wars make me feel so angry and frustrated because it's a war and I really don't know who to blame Everyone was afraid of everyone And scared people do really really stupid and unspeakably terrible things The only thing I don't like about this book is the detailed baseball games which in my opinion is irrelevant and unnecessary I love the rest of the book I feel so connected with the characters for some reason I mourned Sanji's death with Tomi and Billy I got scared as PaPa got arrested I was touched by Billy's act of kindness towards Sanji's little daughter I love Ojii san as much as I hate him I felt the fear and uncertainty of the Nakaji family as the Americans turned against them This book is beautiful gripping heartbreaking and has a lot of truth in it

    I read this book during our reading book clubs and when I read it it broadened my mind about WWII I did know a lot about the Nazis' and what happened during that time but I didn't know much about the Japanese and Pearl Harbor I also connected with the main character Tomi and how it is like to live in his shoes Lastly I learned so much about how life was like on the island and how much extreme racism there was for the Japanese I didn't even know that they were put into concentration camps

    I'm planning on making a list of historical novels about WWII for my seventh graders to choose from Although Under the Blood Red Sun isn't page turning exciting but it is very well written and entertaining The novel offers an important point of view of WWII that of a Japanese American boy Tomi living in Hawaii during the bombing of Pearl HarborI loved the interactions between the characters Salisbury gets not only island dialect dead on but he is also able to capture the sense of humor and competitiveness of the different cultures in Oahu as well Salisbury did an excellent job of portraying all the various pulls and conflicts in Tomi's heart I loved all the baseball parts and I think a lot of boys would too This book will definitely be on my list

    We read this as a family and it took a lot longer than I had hoped It’s amazing how difficult it is to get all of us to sit down together at the same time I love this book because it opened up discussion about American history as well as how we should treat other people
