"Living as Strangers"
By Leimomi Stender-Jenkins
Leimomi Stender-Jenkins is a teacher of American and Hawaiian History. "Living as Strangers" tells the inspiring story of Leimomi's experiences helping loved ones with drug and alcohol addictions. The fact that the book is nonfiction makes her story all the more remarkable.
"See Under the Sea"
Written by Ellie Crowe and illustrated by Belinda Leigh
Island Heritage Publishing $8.99
This small-format hardcover children's book has a unique and educational design due to the reader's ability to see through its translucent pages to the layers of sea-life below. The idea is for children to learn about creatures who live in Hanauma Bay through a clever use of visuals.
