Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Gr 10 Up—Growing up part Hawaiian made visiting Oahu easy for Lea Lane—playing with childhood friends, seeing her Hawaiian relatives, and surfing all came so naturally. When Lea's actress mother moves them both to the state halfway through Lea's junior year to film a new television show, nothing can prepare her for navigating the posh lifestyle in which she finds herself. Will Lea stay in the shadows or change to fit their new life? Hemmings, the author of The Descendants (Random, 2007), in her YA debut creates an interesting take on the classic coming-of-age novel by offering an appealing look into the lives of the wealthy on Oahu and an exclusive invitation into one of the country's most prestigious private schools (President Obama is an alum). A well-paced plot, fully developed and authentic characters, and a multifaceted and integrated setting will pull in reluctant and avid readers, alike. Fans of realistic fiction will eat up the intensity of Lea's angst as she adjusts to her new lifestyle, new friends, and possible romance. Talk of drinking, drugs, and sex make this appropriate for older teens. VERDICT Recommended purchase for collections where contemporary teen fiction flies off the shelves.—DeHanza Kwong, Wahiawa Public Library, Hawaii


* “Wryly funny, generous-hearted, garnished with sun, surfing, and shave ice—a genuinely literary beach read.”—Kirkus Reviews, starred review
