Katie Greene feels so alone. Her mother died. She’s living with her aunt in a small city in Japan and she doesn’t speak the language. Needless to say, high school is rough and it’s not easy to make friends.
Katie never expects to fall for Tomohiro, the star of the school’s kendo team — and an incredible artist. But she is intrigued by him and a little scared. What’s the deal with his mysterious scar? And did she just see his drawings come to life?
