Book club pick

This month's pick for NPR's Backseat Book Club is the Newbery Honor-winning Heart of a Samurai, by Margi Preus. It's another book I haven't read, and probably should—it's based on the true story of Nakahama Manjirō, one of the first Japanese people to visit the United States.

I hear there are some hardcore scenes about whaling in the book, though. I might skip those.
