It's 1945, and the world is in the grip of war. Hideki lives on the island of Okinawa, near Japan. When WWII crashes onto his shores, Hideki is drafted into the Blood and Iron Student Corps to fight for the Japanese army. He is handed a grenade and a set of instructions: Don't come back until you've killed an American soldier.

Ray, a young American Marine, has just landed on Okinawa. He doesn't know what to expect -- or if he'll make it out alive. He just knows that the enemy is everywhere. Hideki and Ray each fight their way across the island, surviving heart-pounding ambushes and dangerous traps. But when the two of them collide in the middle of the battle, the choices they make in that instant will change everything.

Publisher's blurb:
It's 1945, and the world is in the grip of war. Hideki lives with his family on the island of Okinawa, near Japan. When WWII crashes onto his shores, Hideki is drafted into the Blood and Iron Student Corps to fight for the Japanese army. He is handed a grenade and a set of instructions: Don't come back until you've killed an American soldier. Ray, a young American Marine, has just landed on Okinawa.
This is Ray's first-ever battle, and he doesn't know what to expect or if he'll make it out alive. He just knows that the enemy is everywhere, with ambushes and dangerous traps. But then the two of them collide in the middle of the battle...and choices they make in that single instant will change everything.

My comments:
Not bad. Easy to read format which constantly swaps between the two protagonists, Ending is a little out there ( no spoilers here) but it is good to see the war from different perspectives. Very interesting historically with the Okinawan's seeing themselves as very separate from the Japanese people. Boys will like as there is plenty of action. Fast-paced book for those who might get distracted with something not as fast paced in the plot. ( )

Hideki is a middle schooler in Okinawa during World War II. He finds his class conscripted to fight as the island bears up for the battle of Okinawa. The Americans are about to land on the island. After his whole class seems to be killed, he goes on the run trying to survive.
It's fast paced and brutal.
The story of Ray is also told, he's a young American soldier about to see his first action in the field.
It's a harrowing story of trying to survive when you realize your country and people are just stuck in the middle between two sides of a war. ( )

About ten years ago, I visited Okinawa and spent a week there with a peace organization. When one of my grandchildren told me they were reading a book about Okinawa called "Grenade", I knew it was abut the Battle of Okinawa. This book is awfully bloody and quite honest about the toll of war on civilian as well as military lives. Everyone who survives is traumatized by their war experiences. Gratz pulls no punches but he carefully describes the true cost of war and the dehumanization of total war. This is an impressive book if, in my opinion, a bit too bloody for middle school readers.
