Item description for The Red Silk Thread by Darrell White...
As if growing up, and dealing with bullies weren't enough, cupid lets his arrow fly and scores a bulls-eye when he targets ten-year-old Darrell West. Friends at first, he soon falls in love with beautiful and exotic Miyu, a young girl visiting from Japan.
Parents, grandparents, and friends object because of the culture clash and conspire to keep them apart. Even though Darrell and Miyu pledge their love for one another, they both have a lot to learn about life and love before they can ever be together.

What a Love Story Sep 23, 2004
I have read The Red Silk Thread two times and I enjoyed it more the second time. This is one of the best love stories I've read in a long time. Adults should read it because it brings back memories of when they were young and in love or not in love. Young adults should read this book because it makes them realize that being young may be a hard time to go through, but it passes. I recommend this book to everyone. Hope Darrell has another book coming out soon. I rate this book with ten stars.

The Red Silk Thread is an awesome tale of the coming of age of a couple of kids growing up in Oklahoma. Great book! I read it in just two days. Definitely a must read!

Mr. White has written a book which is such an enjoyable read, whether your young or old. The story in the The Red Silk Thread is timeless and reminds us of the power of love. I highly recommend this book.
I Loved This Story Dec 11, 2003
I thoroughly enjoyed reading The Red Silk Thread and would highly recommend it to other teens that are interested in romance and drama, martial arts,or Japanese culture.
It's a really cool story about an interracial relationship between an American boy and a Japanese girl that are somehow predestined from the time they were born to love each other despite the odds of it really happening.
This book would make a great gift.
A Binding Story Nov 27, 2003
I bought the book for my teen son. He read it in just a few days and expressed such a surprising enthusiasm (He almost never reads) that I decided to read it myself.
The title "The Red Silk Thread" refers to the strong bond that runs through the years between an American youth and a Japanese girl. It is a journey of love, loyalty, violence, and guilt which happily concludes in a wonderful ending and a new beginning that I hope the author will tie onto for a sequel.
