    Kindle Yoko's Diary PDFEPUB #180; #186; sharkmotorcyclehelmetscouk #186; yoko's free, diary kindle, Yoko's Diary PDF/EPUBMuch of the criticisms surrounding this book concern its target audience and engagement I can assure you if children are old enough to be the victims of war crimes then they are old enough to read about it With young adults and children increasingly reading dystopian fiction centered around the dangers of authoritarianism ie Hunger Games Maze Runner and Divergent it doesn't take leaps and bounds for a younger audience to become interested 'real life' war crime

    Kindle Yoko's Diary PDFEPUB #180; #186; sharkmotorcyclehelmetscouk #186; yoko's free, diary kindle, Yoko's Diary PDF/EPUBThis publication is really well done Not only are there a number of 'introductions' from various people connected with the book and with Yoko's family and school friends but interspersed throughout the book are explanations of various things that Yoko refers to in her diaryAs an adult reader of this book for children I found the cultural references very interesting I also found it and difficult to read as it got closer and closer to 6th August the date that the USA dropped the atomic bomb We the readers know of the death and devastation to come whereas Yoko was just a schoolgirl who missed her father a soldier away loved her family and worked hard to fulfill her duties as a Japanese citizen such as clearing rubble tending vegetable gard
