I was given a copy of Risuko through the publisher and their partnership with netgalley in exchange for my honest review:

Totomi Japan, 1570 AD

Everyone puts their hope in Risuko her family is in disgrace but all Risuko wants to do is climb trees.  Her family believes she can be a special female warrior and urge her to fight for her families name and her country. 

Risuko is sold to a noblewoman named Lady Chiyome.  Soon Risuko finds herself traveling by foot for days in the snow with other students and Lady Chiyome. 

Risuko is faced with a life different than she has known before and many of the same feelings teenagers today face.  She wears her heart on her sleeve and that can be dangerous. 

Will Risuko’s tree climbing skills be put to the test as a warrior?

Risuko is a great book full of Japanese Culture and adventure perfect for Middle grade or Young Adult readers.

Five out of five stars

Happy Reading
