YA Books On TV

TV Squad reports that Samurai Girl: The Book of the Sword is being made into a TV series for ABC Family. More info at Variety.

I read volume 1 a few years ago; and thought it was fast paced and I can easily visualize it as a TV show. The main character is from a very wealthy Japanese family (she gets her bathing suits tailored! I had no idea you could do that). It's her wedding day and all hell breaks out, people are killed (if I recall, I think ninjas attack?) and she runs away, drama, adventure, swords.

Oh, and for some reason it's all happening in LA (I don't recall why that's where the marriage was taking place.) And, she had been orphaned in a plane crash & was the only survivor.

Samurai Girl was included on the Ya Ya Yas' Asian Americans in Young Adult Fiction list.
