Book 2: One Shark, No Swim


In Hawaii, things are looking up for adopted fourteen-year-old Zader Koanakai Westin. He’s headed to Ridgemont Academy in the fall with his brother Jay and friend Char Siu. The Blalahs have moved onto new targets, Jay’s surfing again, and with Uncle Kahana’s help, they’ve figured out how Zader can join them on the beach and on the reef at Piko Point.

Not bad for the weird kid with the water allergy.

But Zader has questions he can’t let go. Like who his birth parents are, who is The Man with Too Many Teeth, and how did Dream Girl’s imaginary lei end up in his bed? Who are the Niuhi, and if the Uncle Kahana’s Hawaiian legends are true, even out of the water, is anyone ever safe?

It’s going to push Zader, Jay, and Char Siu beyond their limits to solve the Niuhi Shark Saga.

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 second book in The Niuhi Shark Saga trilogy.

This newly revised second edition contains new content and a discussion guide.
