    Parts of it are based on the events that actually occured at Hiroshima. It is a non-fiction book. Some parts of it are probably not historically accurate since those people probably died in that horrific event.

    Hiroshima can be called anything you like. I will call it a city in Japan. This story can be categorized as fiction when someone writes a fictional account based on the city of Japan or the events that happen in Hiroshima; or it can be categorized as non-fiction if it is indeed a true account of any historical events that occurred in the city of Hiroshima.

    Sounds like history, but in story form...
