Have you ever thought about why this book call Nobody Knows? Nobody Knows by Shelley Tanaka, is a story about one family that lived in Tokyo without their mother. Akira has the responsibility to take care of his sisters and brother(Shigeru,Kyoko and Yuki). They have a hard time living because they don’t have money. However, the real story, book and film are all different. I like the genre of this book. This book doesn’t have a theme or I can’t find any theme in this book, because this story is based on real story. When I compared this book to the real story, there are some different points. For example, in this book there are 4 children, but in fact there were 5 children. There are more differences between the book and real story. I think this makes me want to read this book, because if there are only facts that just happened, it might be boring and author can’t make this a long story. When I read this book I can understand it and I can feel it more easlly because the author used third person to narrate the story, so I feel like, I was there and I see what’s going on.
This book is about one family that lived in Tokyo without their mother, book called Nobody Knows. The book title answered my question, my question is why did their mom leave them alone? The answer is Nobody Knows. I think you guys like this book!
