Amazon Description:

When I was six months old, I dropped from the sky—the lone survivor of a deadly Japanese plane crash. The newspapers called me Heaven. I was adopted by a wealthy family in Tokyo, pampered, and protected. For nineteen years, I thought I was lucky.


I’m learning how wrong I was.


They say your life begins on your wedding day.


Here’s what happened on mine:

I lost the person I love most.

I learned that everything I knew about my family was a lie.

Now I’m being hunted. I must fight back, or die.


My life ended that day.

The old Heaven is gone.


I AM SAMURAI GIRL.
