Book One of the Akira Fujioka series.
Akira is just your "average" teenager training to become a professional Japanese dancer. With all the pressure to become number one in Japan, a sudden attack from monsters make that the least of her problems. When two mythological creatures appear on their doorstep, Akira, with the help of a fellow demigod, will leave her homeland and find a sanctuary for half-bloods.
After learning about her godly parent, Akira is forced to travel on a quest for her parent to receive the recognition they so rightly deserve. With only three days to spare, Akira has to find away to decipher a broken prophecy, save someone important to her, and restore honor to her parent's name. She must figure out whether giving her parent the prestige they dearly want is more important over her needs to become the best dancer in all of Japan.
But how can one give their godly parent justice when they haven't finished their journey of self-discovery?
Based on the Percy Jackson and Heroes of Olympus series.
