Description

Saki's stuck spending the summer in the Japanese countryside at her grandma's house. But disaster strikes when Saki accidentally invokes a death curse. Cast into the Night Parade, Saki must prove her worth and escape--before death claims her for good.

The last thing Saki Yamamoto wants to do for her summer vacation is trade in exciting Tokyo for the antiquated rituals and bad cell reception of her grandmother's village. Preparing for the Obon ceremony is boring. Then the local kids take interest in Saki and she sees an opportunity for some fun, even if it means disrespecting her family's ancestral shrine on a malicious dare.

But as Saki rings the sacred bell, the darkness shifts. A death curse has been invoked...and Saki has three nights to undo it. With the help of three spirit guides and some unexpected friends, Saki must prove her worth--or say goodbye to the world of the living forever...

Review quote

"A suspenseful middle-grade fantasy debut evocative of Neil Gaiman's Coraline and classic films like Jim Henson's Labyrinth and Hayao Miyazaki's Spirited Away...This dark adventure serves as a terrific introduction to Japanese legends, with the weird and wondrous on full display.
