it was amazing

Kanani is a kind Haiwaiian girl who desperately wishes to make friends with her visiting cousin from New York. Kanani is such a sweet, open-hearted girl. The cultural references in this book really help the story and characters feel authentic. Whenever they talk about something Haiwaiian it makes me want to guy somewhere foreign (preferably Hawaii) and try new foods and have cultural experiences. I just thought that Kanani's tory was very sweet. Thought the plot was anything but intriguing, I was mostly reading for the experience of seeing what Kanani's life was like and the cultural exposure.
