This book is about two girls ,Kanani and Rachel.Rachel is visiting Kanani and isn't very comfortable in Waipunu or I think Waipuna lol.Rachel gets more nice but then she gets snappy again.But they overcome all of their diffrences and become friends.This book can teach kids about being a good friend.Its a great book for kids eight and up.I also have the doll.Her hair is awedome and really fun to care for.U need to brush her hair then squirtt it and then finger curl it.then there u go.

This is a book that teaches kids the importance of being nice to one another and learning not how hard life is for you but for other people who are closer to you then you know. I would suggest this book to kids with outstanding manners and kids without outstanding manners. I t teaches a lesson to both kinds of kids.

This is a really nice book, not only because it is fun and creative, but there aren't many books that have settings in Hawaii!

How do people not like this book? It is fun it deals with family and homesickness. It is about a girl (kanani) who lives in Hawaii with her family that owns a shave ice shop. Her cousin Rachel from the city comes to live with them for a while, and they have some disagreements. Will they ever get along?
