Yesterday, Kit Callahan was fourteen years old. Today she is a seventeen-year-old resident of the local psychiatric hospital- all thanks to an evil library book.
Kit has no memory of the three years that have elapsed since she touched the cursed book. Freed from insanity by her best friend, an infatuated younger boy named Ryuu, Kit awakens to a world of cursed objects, evil kami spirits, and Shinto legend. Ryuu’s growing spiritual powers give him the ability to sense evil objects that prey on unsuspecting people, but he can’t destroy them. That ability lies hidden within Kit, and she discovers it when she turns an ordinary baseball bat into a weapon of spiritual destruction.
When a girl at their school falls under the influence of a cursed locket, Ryuu and Kit must figure out how to use their newly emerging powers to save her-even if she is a cheerleader. Armed with a blessed baseball bat, a talking dragon, and a few Buddhist monks, Kit sets out to cleanse the world of evil one cursed object, Shinto prayer, and failed math test at a time.
