Eleanor | 6 comments The author I think is a man. I also believe the main character’s name is Jack (but I could be wrong). His parents are killed in the very beginning of the book and he runs through a forest because the people who killed his parents are chasing him. He gets in a canoe and paddles across a lake. He escapes to NYC and gets tricked by a woman in a hotel who is some sort of creature. Either in the first or second book he is trained by a ninja to become a ninja in a barn. It was somewhat of a popular series when it first came out. I also think in the beginning of the book he sees his picture on a missing children's website and finds out his parents aren't his real parents, they are good people who raised him under a different name to protect him. These are the parents that are killed. After this is when all of the chaos ensues.

Eleanor, around what year did you read this book? This will help narrow down the search.

What are the fantasy elements?

Was the book new-ish in 2014, or was it some time earlier? Approximately when, if you can tell us... Thanks!
