Recommended for gr. 6-8. The fantasy elements of this novel are a little too fantastical, I think, for more sophisticated readers (mysterious samurai suit of armor blowing smoke in different colors). That said, the book paints a small portrait of life in modern Japan. 12-year-old Hannah is spending time in Japan living with a Japanese family while her journalist mother researches a series of articles. She and the daughter of the family find clues to a ghostly mystery from the past and with the help of a neighbor and family members work to resolve it.
