Great story, also true

Almost 9 year-old guest blogger says:

"This new book, Heart of a Samurai, is filled with so much action that in the first five minutes of reading it I almost fainted.  It does have some sadness, but it does have some funny parts, too.  If you want to read a book about the first Japanese boy to ever set foot in America, you've got the right book.  All his adventures will make you crack up.  If a romantic book is also what you had in mind, then go ahead and get it - it has a bit of everything."

Also, interestingly, the story is true.  The Japanese remember him pretty well.
