Callista Trent is so done being a ninja. In her first month, she almost got caught with a stolen government laptop, nearly started a war, and barely avoided a nice, long stay in federal prison.
Yet leaving the ninjas isn’t as easy as she thought, not when they may be the only people who know how to keep her family safe. She plans to retrieve that information, and then it’s so long, ninjas. But when it becomes clear that the ninjas are nowhere near done with her family, she has no choice but to accept a new, secret mission—one much more dangerous than her first.
As she struggles to separate truth from deception—including her own—new friendships are tested and love begins to simmer, bringing with it complications she never thought she’d have to face. Now Callista must decide where her true loyalties lie—with the friends she’s come to trust or with the family that might be hiding secrets of its own.
Just Call Me Ninja (Book One)
Sophomore Callista Trent is used to being the anonymous new girl. But when her mother’s nomadic job finally keeps her family in one place long enough to force Callista to settle in, she wants none of it. She doesn’t expect it to last, anyway—it never does.
She also doesn’t expect to stumble across a group of shinobi, modern-day ninjas who also happen to be high school students. Or for them to claim destiny sent her to join them. Or for the hot, harmonica-playing loner from her chemistry class to be one of the instructors.
For once, she starts to think that maybe she could belong somewhere. But she quickly learns her new friends aren’t running some casual karate school. And when Callista’s assigned to a dangerous mission they say only she can complete, she begins to suspect it wasn’t destiny that brought her to the shinobi at all but a carefully laid plan. Oh, and the worst part? The boy she thought she could trust may have known the truth all along.
