I looked down at the paper, still touching the tip of my shoe. I reached for it, flipping the page over to look.
Scrawls of ink outlined a drawing of a girl lying on a bench.
A sick feeling started to twist in my stomach, like motion sickness.
And then the girl in the drawing turned her head, and her inky eyes glared straight into mine.
the heels of a family tragedy, the last thing Katie Greene wants to do
is move halfway across the world. Stuck with her aunt in Shizuoka,
Japan, Katie feels lost. Alone. She doesn’t know the language, she can
barely hold a pair of chopsticks, and she can’t seem to get the hang of
taking her shoes off whenever she enters a building.
gorgeous but aloof Tomohiro, star of the school’s kendo team. How did
he really get the scar on his arm? Katie isn’t prepared for the answer.
But when she sees the things he draws start moving, there’s no denying
the truth: Tomo has a connection to the ancient gods of Japan, and being
near Katie is causing his abilities to spiral out of control. If the
wrong people notice, they'll both be targets.
Katie never wanted to move to Japan—now she may not make it out of the country alive.
After the massive anime and manga kick I've been on this year, I can't want this book more than I do right now. And the magic part sounds so interesting, it's always nice when the magic comes from something artistic or fancy like ink drawings. :) And the author's Canadian, which is always nice. More Canadian content to promote on the blog. ;)
