The Way of the Warrior by Chris Bradford
After his father's ship is attacked by ninjas, Jack Fletcher finds himself in Japan. A great samurai heals Jack and adopts him as his own son. Jack meets many new people, friends and those who are prejudiced against him. He attends samurai school and must face the young people there who dislike him.
On top of his training, Jack must avoid the ninja, Dragon Eye, who attacked his ship and is looking for his father's guide book.
