Waiting on Wednesday #4: Ink by Amanda Sun

*Y'all, 12/12/12 was my birthday. I just wanted to share because I think that's cool, despite the fact that I have a brutal head cold that makes me contrary, and my sassy daughter caught it and Lord have mercy, we have butted congested heads today....
Anway! I had a draft of this post written long ago and I remembered it just now.


INK by Amanda Sun


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.

People, can we talk about how amazing this book sounds??
 
I KNOW!! It could be because I have a fondness for "drawings that come alive" scenarios since reading "Saavy" by Ingrid Law. (It's an MG title, and really, really good!) Maybe it's the cover art. Maybe it's the unique setting. Whatever it is: I am excited about this book! I want to know more about their world.
 
So what are you waiting on this Wednesday?
