Teen Book Review: Ink by Amanda Sun

Ink by Amanda Sun
Mythology and culture immerse the reader into "Ink" by Amanda Sun

Ink is a wonderful book. The mythology and culture immerses the reader into the story. The characters are all life-like and even Jun is likeable.

It is interesting how in the beginning the reader sees Tomohiro as a player and cruel guy, but once we hear his story he's kind and caring. Now for the downside. The book seemed really slow-paced in the beginning. I only kept reading because the details of school and life in Japan was fun for me to read. Also, Tomohiro's complete change from trying to avoid Katie to letting her be near him was a little unbelievable.

I'd give this book a 4.5 Goodreads stars. I loved it, but the pace in the beginning and the complete change in Tomohiro made this book a bit short of being perfect.
