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 is set in Japan.... Need I really say any more?? LOL. I absolutely love the Japanese culture and have been a huge fan of it since I was little. I will admit that I am a complete Anime nerd. But putting aside the whole Japanese part, this book just simple sounds extremely interesting and it also has a beautiful cover. There is a stem of Cherry Blossoms on the cover (I absolutely LOVE Cherry Blossoms, I have a tattoo of them on my right leg). Ohhh... this is tortorous... June 25, 2013 is still SOOO far away....

What book can you not wait for?
