Xander Miyamoto would rather do almost anything than listen to his sixth grade teacher, Mr. Stedman, drone on about weather disasters happening around the globe. When spring break begins at last, Xander plans to spend it playing computer games with his best friend, Peyton. Xander's father briefly distracts him with a comic book about some samurai warrior that pops out of a peach pit. Xander tosses it aside, but Peyton finds it more interesting. But the boys are about to be thrust into the biggest adventure of their lives. To win at this deadly serious game they will have to rely on their wits, courage, faith, and especially, each other. Maybe Xander should have listened to Mr Stedman about the weather after all.

Very decent book about a mixed Japenese boy who learns his strengths. Interesting characters and solid plot. He's a little dumb at times but still likeable enough. The challenge of finding his father and becoming a hero is nicely presented. Any book with diversity gets an extra star. I do wish that the part described as a comic graphic was shown instead of described, since there were other pictures it seemed doable.
