5.0 out of 5 stars This is a must read book from the I Survived series
By Kindle Customer on October 14, 2019
I wanted to read this book because there was an assignment given by our English teacher where we had to read a historical fiction book so I chose this one.

I Survived the Japanese Tsunami is a good book for historical fiction readers as it explains about events in the past like the Tohoku earthquake and tsunami.

This book is about a boy named Ben Kudo, his brother Harry , his mother and their father’s uncle, Ojisan who get separated due to a tsunami which spread for over 5 miles INLAND. Ben has been disheartened as his father died. His brother made a wish on the top of a magical cherry tree that their father would come back and he did! His wisdom came back into Ben’s heart and mind which helped him survive the quake and the tsunami.

This book really interested me because there is a lot of action the author explains in a way I can imagine it happening behind me.For example, in chapter 1 it says , “ The churning water twisted him, tore at him, spun at him like a bird caught in a tornado. Terror screamed through his body .” You will really want to read on and find out what happened in the book.

I feel that there are funny moments like when Harry made the wish and came tumbling down the cherry tree and then they had to rush to the hospital because there was a huge gash on his hand. There they met Dr. Sato who tricked Harry and said that DARTH VADER had a scar . Harry wanted to be just like him so he was brave enough to get the scar.

I hope I have contributed and that you will read this outstanding review.
