Description

Sadako and the Thousand Paper Cranes (Puffin Modern Classics)  “An extraordinary book, one no reader will fail to find compelling and unforgettable.” —Booklist, starred review

The star of her school’s running team, Sadako is lively and athletic…until the dizzy spells start. Then she must face the hardest race of her life—the race against time. Based on a true story, Sadako and the Thousand Paper Cranes celebrates the courage that makes one young woman a heroine in Japan. 

"[The] story speaks directly to young readers of the tragedy of Sadako's death and, in its simplicity, makes a universal statement for 'peace in the world.” —The Horn Book "The story is told tenderly but with neither a morbid nor a sentimental tone: it is direct and touching."  —BCCB

    I first read this when I was in the seventh grade. It's a really good book, even though it's sad when the main character died at the end. It's amazing and honoring. I highly recommend it.

    This is one of the most beautiful and sad stories I have read. There is too much war in our world and beautiful people like Sadako are hurt because of it. I am so grateful her story wasn't lost and her memory will live on forever. Read this with your children and inspire them to pray for peace.
