HARPERCOLL
After being shipwrecked in Japan, adopted, and taught the Way of the Warrior at samurai school, Jack is ready to embark on the next chapter of his training: the Way of the Sword.  His lessons involve fighting blindfolded, using a b-o staff, and finding messages in origami--all while withstanding the constant pressure of being a foreigner. The stakes are raised even higher when the school holds a contest. The winners will learn the great samurai Masamoto-sama's secret martial arts technique. Jack is sure this is the key to protecting his prized possession--his father's rutter--from Dragon Eye, the ninja who will stop at nothing to get it.
