Ever wanted to learn karate so you could kick someones butt,well, then this isn't the book for you, but read it anyways. This books about a trouble making girl who learns learns to change her ways by learning from her master, an old guy who is her grandma's friend. She once thought that she was alone but after being around her master, she finds herself in a new light. Read this book, it has action and its cooler than a barrel of monkeys, maybe...

Another read for the book/movie combo project that my sister and I are working are. This one is inspirational with M. Miyagi helping Julie work through her anger issues.
