Sachi and her sister, Riko hurry off to school. The girls are living in Hiroshima and the date is August 6, 1945. When Sachi looked up and saw the American bomber, she had no idea that her whole world was changing forever. "There is a blinding light like the sun. There is a boom like a giant drum. There is a terrible wind." And many in Hiroshima are gone forever.
