Item Details

"Ink is in their blood. On the heels of a family tragedy, Katie Greene must 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. When Katie meets aloof but gorgeous Tomohiro, the star of the school's kendo team, she is intrigued by him...and a little scared. His tough attitude seems meant to keep her at a distance, and when they're near each other, strange things happen. Pens explode. Ink drips from nowhere. And unless Katie is seeing things, drawings come to life. Somehow Tomo is connected to the kami, powerful ancient beings who once ruled Japan--and as feelings develop between Katie and Tomo, things begin to spiral out of control.

I really wanted to love this book, the setting was great, but it was overall disappointing. The lead was very much a manic pixie dream girl, boys fawn over her and she has no apparent flaws. The plot left a lot to be desired. In terms of the actually design of the book, I thought it was great. The watercolour cover and the ink drawings are beautiful, worth getting just for the jacket design.

Love the art, love that its about the japanese culture and set in Japan. I love Japan. I love that she decribed the scenery. The main character was a little annoying at times but towards the end she was getting brave. 4.5 Stars

Truly a breathtaking and wonderful story that brings to life the beautiful country of Japan in the midst of a compellingly dark plot and gorgeous characters.

One of the few books I stopped reading. The plot line just didn't make sense.

This book is great. The unique story paired with the Japanese background makes it a great read. I would recommend this for anyone who is looking for a different book with a bit of action mystery, and even a little bit of romance. Try this book. It is a totally different kind than any I have ever read.

"After moving from New York to Shizuoka, Japan, 16-year-old Katie meets Tomohiro, a brooding senior with a nasty reputation - and the incredible ability to make his drawings come to life. Tomo's mysterious power turns dangerous when Katie is around, however, and soon their already risky attraction is complicated by forces both human (the Japanese mafia) and supernatural (the Kami, ancient Shinto gods). The high-intensity turmoil of Katie and Tomo's relationship will appeal to fans of shojo manga or paranormal romance, and the imaginative, suspenseful story will leave readers desperate for the next book in this new series."
