Fruits Basket Book One (book review)

Fruits Basket Book One, by Natsuki Takaya, is the tale of high school student Tohru Honda, an orphan who lives in a tent in the forest...until she discovers the household of the Sohmas, a family with an ancient curse. They are possessed by the vengeful spirits of the animals of the Zodiac, and occasionally they transform into those animals. Having given Tohru a home, the Sohmas expect her to keep their secret...and it isn't as easy as it sounds.

This story was spiced up with the perfect amount of romance and magic. I like the idea of the Zodiac spirits, and I'm eager to read the next book to find out more about the Sohmas!

I give this book 5 out of 5 stars.

This book was for the Graphic Novel Challenge.
