Set in the mid 1970s, this historical novel follows the struggle and ultimate destruction of a remote village of Dega people living in the hills of South Vietnam. Y'Tin wants nothing more than to be an elephant handler and is assigned the all-important task of caring for Lady, one of the tribe�¢ï¿½ï¿½s three elephants. Although the Americans left Vietnam, the war rages on. When Y'Tin�¢ï¿½ï¿½s small village is violently attacked by the North Vietnamese Army, Y'Tin plays witness and must decide what to do. A Million Shades of Gray is a story about friendship, trust, and truth. In 2004, Kadohata wrote Kira-Kira, her first novel aimed at a younger audience. For her efforts she was awarded the 2005 Newbery Award for excellence in children's writing- an amazing feat for a first-time children's author.
