William G

Great Read!

by William G on Feb 2, 2012

As a kama'aina myself, big shout out to Kaui Hart Hemmings for a wonderful read that captures the flavor of a certain piece of Hawai'i. Strong characters, humorous, deep and real story with universal touch. Try to read it before you see Clooney in the role! Thanks, Kaui, for setting a family story against the backdrop of Hawai'i's struggle over land and identity.
