Eleanor Coerr crafted this story of Sadako's 12th year after reading the book of her letters her classmates compiled after her death.

This was a quick listen, but well worth the inexpensive price. The story is very moving. As you begin to listen, you quickly start to like Sadako and want to see her succeed and accomplish all the things she has set before her. It's heart breaking to follow her through her trials. I found this story to be a wonderful addition to the textbook study of this time period and the atom bomb. It is a story you will never forget as you are allowed into the private world of the individuals who suffered long after the atom bomb was dropped. The narrator does a fantastic job of reading this inspiring story.

Such a heartwarming story!
Although I purchased the book and audiobook for my daughter for her 5th grade reading project last year, I listened to the audio after reading the book with her first.
Listening to a narrator instead, creates such a vivid imagery of the characters and what they went through.
Although it is rated for grade school age children, any adult would also enjoy the audio and/or book. I highly recommend this audio/book!
