This was a good book, although I do have to say it was rather strange as well considering she didn't know she was a ninja. How can you not KNOW? Anyway, it is something worth reading.

Also, this was a First Reads novel from Goodreads.com. ( )
  mariahsidhe | May 12, 2016 |
This novel had a lot of potential but didn't quite deliver. The character is overly "young" in voice and mentality, given the rigor of her upbringing. There are plot gaps that are never fully explained, or explained with 2 or 3 vague sentences.

The cultural, historical and geographical tidbits make the story richer, and this helped me finish the novel. Jet's nemesis/love interest felt underdeveloped. Given the switching story perspectives, it would have been better to right the story about both characters from beginning to end.

This novel would make a fantastic graphic novel series ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 480531284X, Hardcover)

Seventeen-year-old Jet Black is a ninja. There's only one problem—she doesn't know it. Others do, however, and they're scheming to capture her and uncover her secrets. When her mother dies, Jet knows only that she must go to Japan to protect a family treasure hidden in her ancestral land. She's terrified, but if Jet won't fight to protect her world, who will? Stalked by bounty hunters and desperately in love with the man who's been sent to kill her, Jet must be strong enough to protect the treasure, preserve an ancient culture, and save a sacred mountain from destruction. In Jet Black and the Ninja Wind, multiple award-winning author, poet, and translator Leza Lowitz makes her first foray into young adult fiction with a compulsively readable tale whose teenage heroine must discover if she can put the blade above the heart—or die trying.

After her mother's death, seventeen-year-old Jet Black goes to Japan to try to protect a family treasure unaware that she is a ninja, but pursued by bounty hunters who know the secret, and in love with the man sent to kill her.
