Katie Greene is having a hard time adjusting to her new life in Japan. It’s hard to fit in at school when you don’t speak the language. But there is a bright spot: Tomohiro, the star of the school’s kendo team. Katie’s drawn to his art. She’s also a little scared of him. What’s the deal with his mysterious scar? And did she just see his drawings come to life?
