This book in verse portrays in a moving account the lives lost in two of WWII’s most infamous events: Pearl Harbor and Hiroshima.


Lois Lowry draws upon her personal account and her own memories as a child in Hawaii and Japan. It is obvious there has been a great deal of historical research in this stunning book for young readers. The text combines humanity and war filled with pain, truth, and the importance of bridging cultural differences.

The story is haunting, heartbreaking, as well as uplifting, On the Horizon will remind the reader of the horrors and heroism in our past, as well as a vision of hope for our future.
