Hiroshima Dreams by Kelly Easton

Hiroshima Dreams by Kelly Easton was a book that I really wanted to enjoy.  However, some of the content was a little bit mature for my elementary school crowd.  The story was about Lin, a shy young girl, who grows into a confident and mature young woman.  The story focuses on the relationship between Lin and her grandmother, Obaachan.  I really wanted to be able to recommend this title to my fifth grade teachers for a read-aloud, but because of some of the mature overtones in the book I do not feel comfortable doing that.
