Illustrated by Masashi Kishimoto
Part of the Naruto series
Naruto is a ninja-in-training with a need for attention, a knack for mischief, and sealed within him, a strange, formidable power.
His antics amuse his instructor Kakashi and irritate his teammates, intense Sasuke and witty Sakura, but Naruto is serious about becoming the greatest ninja in the village of Konohagakure!
Still in the thick of the Journeyman Ninja Selection Exams, the student ninja unleash their signature techniques as they spar in a series of one-on-one elimination matches.
The heated battles bring out a new side in many of the opponents as they fight to advance to the third stage of the test and, in some cases, struggle to survive!
Naruto looses an explosive new move on his foe...but will it be enough to win? And when Hyuga clan members Neji and Hinata are pitted against one another, will old family grudges make their duel even more vicious than the others?

Review by Kassilem
Sakura's fight ended in a surprising way and Naruto's fight shows once again that he's got tons of stamina, and more skill than even he realizes. Nice volume; it even made me laugh out loud halfway through. That was a first for these novels. :)
