Teen readers discuss Bleach by Tite Kubo in this 3-in-1 edition. Graphic Fiction Readers is a book group for teens that meets on the third Tuesday of each month at the Trails West branch library. Copies of the selection are available for checkout at the branch library.
Ichigo Kurosaki has always been able to see ghosts, but this ability doesn't change his life nearly as much as his close encounter with Rukia Kuchiki, a Soul Reaper and member of the mysterious Soul Society. While fighting a Hollow, Rukia attempts to lend Ichigo some of her powers so that he can save his family; but much to her surprise, Ichigo absorbs every last drop of her energy. Now a full-fledged Soul Reaper himself, Ichigo quickly learns that the world he inhabits is one full of dangerous spirits, and along with Rukia it's Ichigo's job to protect the innocent from Hollows and help the spirits themselves find peace.
