Exploring themes of grief, masculinity, and belonging, Ryan Inzana’s award-winning work is perfect for fans of Hey, Kiddo, American Born Chinese, and Tilly Walden.

Eisner Nominee · Asian/Pacific American Young Adult Literature Honor

Raised by his Japanese mother, Ichiro idolizes his dead American father, and struggles to fit in. When his mother decides to visit Japan, Ichiro is left with his grandfather, in a country he doesn’t know. 

Grandfather becomes Ichi’s guide, sharing Japan with him. But one night, a monster drags Ichi away—into the domain of the gods! Now, he must face his fears and learn about the nature of man, of gods, and of war. He also learns there are no easy answers—for gods or men.

Called thought-provoking, wholly original, and captivating by reviewers, Ichiro “asks hard questions for readers but challenges them to arrive at their own conclusion” (Booklist) and offers “a powerful commentary on war and peace” (Bulletin). Now with a new "Making of Ichiro" section for a glimpse at creator Ryan Inzana's process.
