An interesting mixed-memoir in vignettes. Lowry, who was a four-year-old military kid living in Hawaii at the time of the Pearl Harbor bombing, sifts through her own memories while detailing the lives of those lost in the bombings. She then does the same with the atomic bombing in Hiroshima, dipping into the lives lost and memories remaining there, before reverting back to memoir in order to examine her own experience of moving to Japan as an 11-year-old. Reading this book feels like visiting a memorial. Great for a history-lover who has read it all and is looking for something fresh and unique. ~ Reviewed by Nadja Tiktinsky
