When Katie Greene becomes an orphan and the guardians appointed in her mother’s will are unsuitable for the moment (her grandfather is undergoing treatment for cancer), she moves to Japan to live with an aunt she barely knows. While her aunt is supportive and caring, Katie’s life has been turned upside down and now she feels alone and isolated in a country where she doesn’t speak the language and the rules of society are so very different than what she’s grown up with. She manages to make a few friends and then she meets Tomohiro, a handsome popular teen and the school’s kendo star. However, there’s something else about Tomo that draws Katie to him and it’s this pull that changes her life even further. But is it for the better or worse?

I know this is YA, but the angst, lordy the angst. Ugh. The writing is a bit jerky and the plot kinda confusing. I don’t feel Katie and Tomo’s attraction. At all.  Zip. Zero. The best thing about this book are the descriptions of Japanese society. The rest is just blah, blah, blah.
