“This is not a book I would normally read, but I am glad I did. It brought light to a couple of hard realities. How cruel we are to differences and how little we tolerate it…I could not put the book down.”

5.0 out of 5 stars Enjoyed INK
“This book took me to see things deeper and made me see my own stain. Realized that we all have stain, just not seen on the surface, we have a choice to hide it, but not Ink. He has no choice to hide it. By struggling to accept the brutal reality the world creates around him, his life is always on the turbulent ripple. The last chapter about him finding the deep stillness underneath the ripple through love offers us the insight that we all have the access to the stillness regardless of stain.”
– Nobuko N.
