What is it about?

Blossoming Bushido follows the intersecting lives of an awkward, emotionally withdrawn 5th grade girl, and a samurai of high intelligence and superior killer instinct. Their stories will crosscut between concurrent story lines with the point-of-view switching between the 5th grader and samurai as the story sees fit.

When Felicia Fabian, ten-year-old suburbanite with a blossoming set of problems, from being at home with a tattle-tell little sister, to being invisible to boys, mean girls, and fractions at school, goes into the hospital for surgery to remove an eye tumor, she never imaged just how much her life would change. As the voice that everyone jokingly says they have in their heads for Felicia becomes real, now she shares her body with the soul of Kazuma, a Meiji Era samurai who escaped damnation of the Underworld, and for the sake of Felicia's mind, body and soul she must form an uneasy alliance with Kazuma in order to survive to the tender age of eleven.


Character Studies- this how I start, trying to figure out the look of the characters in the story.

These are the characters studies of the three samurai that appear in the novel.
