Coming Attractions: Ink

When I was a kid, there was a japanese fairy tale I had that I loved; it was about a boy who could paint things so beautiful and perfect that they came to life. So, to keep that from happening, he always left one little piece unfinished or intentionally imperfect. (This is pretty common in folklore, actually, and many traditional artists still do this.)  The synopsis for Amanda Sun's Ink seems to play off of this motif, which, yay!  Going on the to-read for sure.

Also, it's just gorgeous. I would totally hang this on my walls.

Ink by Amanda Sun
Paperback, 384 pages
Expected publication: June 25th 2013 by Harlequin Teen
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 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.


Tell me all your thoughts.
Let's be best friends.
