No one knows what to do with Reiko. She is full of hatred. All she can think about is how to best hurt herself and the people closest to her. After a failed suicide attempt, Reikos parents send her from their Seattle home to spend the summer with family in Japan to learn to control her emotions. But while visiting Kuramagi, a historic village preserved to reflect the nineteenth-century Edo period, Reiko finds herself slipping back in time into the life of Miyu, a young woman even more bent on revenge than Reiko herself. Reiko loves being Miyu, until she discovers the secret of Kuramagi village, and must face down Miyus demons as well as her own.

This book was pretty shocking and scary to me. A teenage girl named Reiko, has problems with her self. And has attempted suicide. After her incident her parents sent her to spend her summer in Seattle. Reiko experiences a life changing event that she’ll never forget. This book was okay, it was just a little boring. There was no escalation to the book. Rating: 3/5
