Wolf is just a toddler when the ghost of a Japanese girl appears his crib. As he grows older, she never leaves his side, helping him to cope and survive his unpredictable, alcoholic father. Ultimately, Wolf must make a decision that will change his life forever, and only his unique friends, his powerful imagination, and recollections of his past life as a samurai warrior will help him choose the right path.
I really enjoyed this tale of a young boy who befriends a “ghost” and learns how to overcome an abusive situation. The writing style is descriptive yet keeps the plot moving forward. I loved how the protagonist finds a way to deal with the situation in a productive way, which isn’t always easy especially for a kid. The twist at the end really surprised me and I look forward to reading the second book.
My rating: 5/5 stars
