Momo Arashima steals the Sword of the Wind / Misa Sugiura.
All Momo wants for her twelfth birthday is an ordinary life--a life like everyone else's. At home, she has to take care of her absent-minded widowed mother. At school, kids ridicule her for mixing up reality with the magical stories her mother used to tell her. But then Momo's mother falls gravely ill, and a death hag straight out of those childhood stories attacks Momo at the mall, where she's rescued by a talking fox. It turns out that Momo's mother is a banished Shinto goddess who used to protect a long-forgotten passageway to Yomi--a.k.a. the land of the dead. That passageway is now under attack, and evil spirits threaten to escape and wreak havoc across the earth. Joined by Niko the fox and Danny--her former best friend turned popular jerk, whom she never planned to speak to again, much less save the world with--Momo must embrace her (definitely not ordinary) identity as half human-half goddess to unlock her divine powers, save her mother's life, and force the demons back to Yomi. -- Provided by publisher.
