    I have not read this, but I am quite knowledgeable about the Second World War. The Americans realized that their messages were being intercepted by the Imperial Japanese Forces, and like any person would do, they made a code. They decided to use the language of the Navajo to get messages and important commands across the battlefield without being found out. The Americans were not fluent, mixing English in with the words. So, they let Navajo do all of the talking, letting them gain victory. They are mostly associated with the Battle of Iwo Jima now. In Florida, there is a monument to the Navajo Code Talkers. This book is a somewhat grim reminder that we should not look down on others.

    I've had braces myself, so I understand Raina's situation clearly. It is written down with very amusing pictures. I'm not one for graphic novels, but this book took the cake. It was easy to relate to for me, and might for you. Telgemeier gave a good effort to bring this book to life.

    "Let the ruling classes tremble at a communist revolution..." This book is suited for older kids, preferably 8th grade and higher than that. It is quite hard for young children to understand, using words like 'epoch', 'bourgeoisie', and 'proletariat'. It is a very good book for someone who stands on the left of politics.

    I remember reading this with my friends back in the years. The book was a little too short, but was one of the best WWII books I've read. I haven't read it in years, but I will sum it up. Sadako Sasaki. She is a girl who grew up in post-war Japan, after the bombings. She lived a mile away from Ground Zero. She contracts leukemia, and starts folding paper cranes. In Japan, it is said, that if you fold a thousand paper cranes, the gods will listen to you, and heal you. She couldn't, according to her book, only folding around 700 before becoming too weak. I remember the last line of the book, clear as day, "She never woke up." However, according to her family, she folded more than a thousand before dying. Anyway you slice it, she lives on, as there is a statue of Sadako at the Hiroshima Peace Park.
