Barnes & Noble

After jumping into the ocean at Piko Point, life will never be the same for fourteen-year-old Zader Kaonakai Westin, the adopted boy allergic to water.

Zader’s answers to who his birth parents are only leave him with more questions. When confronted by The Man With Too Many Teeth, he’s given an ultimatum:  take away what’s most important to his brother Jay and live in exile from his Hawaiian family or watch as The Man with Too Many Teeth murders Jay.

Zader’s decision leads him on an adventure to discover his Niuhi family, how his art can change the world, and how family is defined by more than blood.

Devastated by his loss, Jay’s anger burns white-hot. This time it’s going to take Uncle Kahana, Nili-boy, and the Na Koa Wounded Warriors to get Jay back into the water.

Their alliance fractured, Jay, Zader, and Char Siu must work to reunite their family. After all, when Hawaiian gods are involved, destiny is not always what it appears.

In a world where Pacific myths and legends come to life, fans of Disney’s  Moana and Lilo & Stitch, The Karate Kid, and the Percy Jackson series will love the conclusion to The Niuhi Shark Saga trilogy.

This edition contains additional content and a discussion guide.

  • I am trying to locate 14 copies of “One Boy, No Water” for a class reading (Nene Award project). Both Barnes & Noble and Amazon are not showing copies.

    Please provide publisher information so I can attempt to order directly.

    We are a small, private, Buddhist-based school in Honolulu, Hawaii.

    • Aloha e Lori,
