About this item

Christian learns that his great-grandfather was part of the team that constructed the atomic bombs dropped on Japan in World War II. And he wants to make amends … somehow.While attending the funeral of his great-grandfather, ninth-grader Christian Deaver learns that the man he loved and respected was a member of the Manhattan Project, the team that designed and created the atomic bombs dropped on Japan during World War II.Then, on a school trip to Japan, Chris meets Yuko, now eighty-one years old, who was eleven when she was horribly injured and maimed when the first bomb exploded over Hiroshima. Christian is determined to do something to make up for what his great-grandfather did. But after all this time what can one teenager really do? His friends tell him it’s a stupid idea, that there’s nothing he can do. And maybe they’re right.

But maybe they’re not.
