ARC Spotlight - INK by Amanda Sun

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.

This book made me want to visit Japan! The main character, Katie, is immersed in Japanese culture, and it feels like you are too. You learn a bit about Japanese culture while reading an exciting story about Japanese gods. Oh, and what an amazing cover!

Ink will be available June 25th, 2013…the same day as my book! J

Have a happy Thanksgiving everyone! I'll be back next Monday.
