who is samurai girl?

I heard several months ago that ABC Family had ordered the pilot for Samurai Girl, a new series based on the book Samurai Girl: The Book of the Sword by Carrie Asai, which tells the tale of a girl named Heaven, who, rescued from a plane crash as an infant, grows up with an adoptive family that hides a "dark secret." And I guess somewhere along the way, as the book's title implies, she learns the way of the samurai. Crazy! It was reported earlier this month that Jamie Chung, formerly of Real World: San Diego, has signed on to star in the series: Jamie Chung Is Samurai Girl. Goodness. Oooh, a show about ancient samurai traditions and blood ancestors and ninjas and all that good stuff! Why do I get the feeling this show is going to be a disaster?
