I would love to tell my favorite part of the book, but that is giving it away. After the death of Ben's father, Ben, Harry, and his Mom visit his dad's hometown in Japan. Furthermore, there is a problem. I like a book that solves a problem. A small earthquake can cause disaster if you are on an island surrounded by water. A minor earthquake strikes, which causes a huge tsunami. That is another reason that I liked this book, because I learned so many new things. Ben couldn't understand a word the Japanese people were saying except for "Tsunami." Ben is separated from his family by the huge wave. Will he ever see them again?
I would recommend this book to readers who love action and can never put a book down because there are a lot of feelings throughout the story. If you ever have a chance to read a book, I would suggest this one. If you read it you will love "I Survived the Japanese Tsunami."
