Seventeen-year-old Jet Black is a ninja. There's only one problem--she doesn't know it.

Jet has never lived a so-called normal life. Raised by her single Japanese mother on a Navajo reservation in the Southwest, Jet's life was a constant litany of mysterious physical and mental training. For as long as Jet can remember, every Saturday night she and her mother played "the game" on the local mountain. But this time, Jet is fighting for her life. And at the end of the night, her mother dies and Jet finds herself an orphan--and in mortal danger.

Fulfilling her mother's dying wish, Jet flies to Japan to live with her grandfather where she discovers she is the only one who can protect a family treasure hidden in her ancestral land. She's terrified, but if Jet won't fight to protect her world, who will? Stalked by bounty hunters and desperately attracted with the man who's been sent to kill her, Jet must be strong enough to protect the treasure, preserve an ancient culture and save a sacred mountain from destruction.

In Jet Black and the Ninja Wind, multiple award-winning author, poet and translator team Leza Lowitz and Shogo Oketani make their first foray into young adult fiction with a compulsively readable tale whose teenage heroine must discover if she can put the blade above the heart--or die trying.

Adventure, fantasy, ancient wisdom, and imminent danger—Jet Black meets them all head on. Like the Hunger Game's Katniss Everdeen, she is a fighter with heart. A new teen hero has arrived.

Jet Black and the Ninja Wind really drew me in! It's a page-turner rich in striking ideas, unexpected action and fascinating cultural and language secrets! This pacey, intelligent yarn brings together feisty young modern characters, epic derring-do and an ancient mystery. Jet Black brush-strokes for us a wide, credible world with an engaging, accessible voice that also packs sword-cut precision. Few debut novels exude such powerful and unique magic and romance! Let the wind blow!

This fast-paced whirlwind story of the teenage Jet, inheritor of ninja skills through her Japanese mother, spins the reader through history, legend, Buddhism and modern Japan. With vivid description, Lowitz and Oketani have created a visual experience akin to watching an epic thriller film. Five stars!
