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. The wrong people are starting to ask questions, and if they discover the truth, no one will be safe.

Loved this! Wish there a was more stories out there about modern Americans moving to Japan. I really felt like Katie was a real person to me. Scared and alienated in a place she couldn't understand. Yet with stubborn determination, she slowly adapts to become a strong character and holds her own against whatever challenges she faces. Amanda Sun did a nice job sculpting this story, relatable characters and making me feel like I was experiencing Japan from across the globe. Alexandra Bailey did a beautiful job narrating this exciting tale and did a nice job with the Japanese phrases. I look forward to continuing Katie and Tomo's story and see where the Ink leads them.
