Under The Blood Red Sun
Have you ever wanted to read a book with lots of adventure, scary moments, and puzzling events? Well, then I guess Under The Blood Red Sun, by Graham Salisbury, is the right book for you. The protagonist of the story, Tomikazu, faces many challenges, including being discriminated for being Japanese. His family is also Japanese, and they also face many challenges. Will Tomikazu and his friends, the Rats, be able to help the town fight back against the Japanese who bombed Pearl Harbor? Find out as you read this fantastic book!
An event in this novel that I really fancied was when Tomi, Billy. Papa, and Sanji
went fishing in the beautiful and gleaming ocean. When everyone boarded the boat, Billy felt kind of nervous because he had never been on a boat before. However, when the boat arrived at their fishing spot, Billy felt pride instead of nervousness. After that, everyone went fishing, and their fishing poles were huge! Tomi, Papa, and Sanji were catching a lot of fish, but Billy hadn't caught any. Then, all of a sudden, Billy got a gigantic and powerful bite on his line, almost pulling his pole into the water. Will Billy ever catch the monstrous fish at the bottom of the ocean?
Another event in the novel that I thought was really neat was when Tomi, Billy and the Rats played the Caaco Boys. The baseball game started out as a tie, 1-1 to be exact. Towards the end of the game, however, the Rats pulled ahead, making the game 3-1. After that, the Caaco Boys tied t11e game, and their star player hurt one of the Rats players. Who will win the continuous fight for being the team that wins?
The last event in the story that explains the title is when the Japanese bomb Pearl Harbor. The event starts out as Billy and Tomi are playing baseball at Diamond Grass, a sparkling place in the morning. Billy sees rising smoke from Pearl Harbor, and he quickly tells Tomi to get to the tall banyan tree. On top of the tree, the two of them see Pearl Harbor being circled by Japanese fighter planes, with blood-red suns painted on the plane's fuselage. Pearl Harbors' ships are ablaze and the smoke could be seen for miles to stretch. Thus, how the story got its name, for that day many people lost their lives from the Japanese bombing and destroying many ships in Pearl Harbor .
The book, Under The Blood Red Sun, by Graham Salisbury, was really good. This book has a lot of adventure and dangers, and it told me that Japanese people were discriminated because Japanese people had bombed Pearl Harbor. I hope you read this fantastic book and find out about all of the "Secretive events!"
