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.

On 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.

Then there’s 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. Goodreads

My love of the Japanese culture demands that I pick up this book. I mean, first off, look at that incredibly beautiful cover. Second, the premise sounds like a Jdrama I would be super excited to watch. So yeah, I’m really excited. I don’t even know what else I can say, this book just sounds like a dream come true for me.

  1. Oooh this is the first time I’ve read a snippet from the book – it doesn’t sound like the paintings are very happy with her! Ink has been on my watch-list for a while now – it just sounds so good! And that cover is stunning.

    My WoW pick this week is Insomnia by J.R. Johansson

    • 🙂 I’m glad you like it! I’m so excited for this one, like… I’m scared I’m getting my expectations way too high and it’ll disappoint, but it just sounds so darn gooood!!
