Jet has never lived a so-called normal life. Raised by her single Japanese mother on a Navajo reservation in the SouthwestJet’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 wishes 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 to the man who’s been sent to kill herJet must be strong enough to protect the treasure preserved 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.
