[2014] 1Haleysan (Reading Period 1): Ink

Quote"And then the sketched girl turned her head, and her inky eyes glared straight into mine.” Response to quote the line is so important to the story because it’s the first time that Katie noticed the ink drawings moving.

1 good The good thing about the book is the description of Japan and its culture.1 badThe bad thing is this story is that the author uses a lot of Japanese words and if you don’t understand it you have to look it up in the glossary in the back.

Tomohiro ends up beating the boy up and Katie notices ink falling from Tomohiro’s wrist. Katie’s new life in Japan has changed her a lot because of the different culture and new family but of course she’s going to have to get used to it.

Significance of the titleThe author named the book “Ink” because the story has to do a lot with the suspense ink. Katie sees many things painted out of ink move but she has no idea how. It seems as though someone is controlling the ink.
