Contemporary YA

When her father accepts a job offer in Maui, Jess feels like this could be the fresh start she craves. The island’s beauty and charm provide a stark contrast to her home back in Canada. But the elite social hierarchy of Maui Gardens Charter School proves to be a thorny world to navigate. Then swoops in Kai Kamealoha; a surf-loving Maui local, with a fierce loyalty to his family, and a passion for preserving the island’s natural beauty. Kai shows Jess that Maui is much more than the sun, surf, and sand of tourism brochures, and he introduces her to an authentic look at Hawaiian life. Jess can’t help but fall in love with the island, and maybe with Kai Kamealoha as well. So, when she discovers that a real estate developer is forcing Kai’s family to sell their ancestral farm, she’s determined to help him find a way to save it. But digging deeper exposes a duplicity within her own family. Her presence on the island may be putting Kai’s family in jeopardy and leaving the island for good may be her only option.
