Ink by Amanda Sun, due out in July, is new to my (electronic shelves) this weekend for review!
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.
I have been busily binging on chic-lit YA contemporary romance (Hello Stephanie Perkins and Sarah Dessen, nice to meet you!) and this is going to be a good change of pace so I don't O.D. on beach-y reads before I even get to the beach.
Thanks to Tynga's Reviews for hosting Stacking the Shelves, a way to highlight the new reads we have picked up! What is new on your shelves this weekend?
