Overview

Vacationing in Hawaii, 12-year-old Jack and his almost 11-year-old sister Ashley snorkel and discover the island's wildlife. Then they are swept up in a mystery with Danny, a young boy from Vietnam, who offers to take them exploring.

While climbing Devastation Trail on the Kilauea Iki crater, they are chased by a mysterious woman in red with long black hair who shouts at them in Hawaiian. Is she Pele, come to exact her revenge because the kids ate ohelo berries without offering one to her first? Ashley is convinced that the woman is Pele, but Jack isn't so sure, and Danny isn't talking. If she's not Pele, however, why did she chase them and how did she disappear into the lava cave?

This fast-paced novel combines science, suspense, youthful camaraderie, Hawaiian history and culture, and breathtaking descriptions of the island's natural landscapes and lava flows—a unique combination certain to capture youthful imaginations. A map that will help young readers picture the volcanoes at Hawaiian National Park is included.

Jack, Ashley, and their parents visit Hawaii where they meet a Vietnamese boy who is going to live with his American grandfather whom he has never met, and are pursued by the Goddess Pele.

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Kathleen Karr
The second in the new "National Parks Mystery" series finds siblings Jack and Ashley visiting Hawaii Volcanoes National Park with their parents. After they meet Danny Tran and he introduces them to the legend of Pele, the Hawaiian fire goddess, they find themselves lost in a volcano cone being pursued by what appears to be the angry Pele herself. The book has the feel of the old Happy Hollisters or Bobbsey Twin books, with an overlay of ecological information and a selection of National Geographic's usual excellent photos and maps.
School Library Journal
Gr 4-6-While vacationing in Hawaii, Jack, Ashley, and their parents are asked to accompany Danny, a young Vietnamese boy, back to Wyoming, where he will live with his American grandfather, a man whom he has never met. Danny quickly bonds with Jack, while Ashley has difficulty overcoming his overbearing personality. The suspense begins when the children try to escape from a mysterious pursuer whom they believe to be the Goddess Pele. What begins as a promising adventure story set in the Hawaii Volcanoes National Park quickly fizzles into a disappointing tale. The underlying plot involving Danny and his shadowed past is intriguing and heightened by references he makes about men with guns, a helicopter search for prisoners, and an internment camp, but this information is overshadowed by the endless pursuit of the trio through the park. The characters are superficially drawn and the historical and geographical tidbits about the Goddess Pele, Hawaii, and the national park, while interesting, fail to jump-start the story. Full-color photos of Hawaii's flora and fauna, and of the volcano itself are beautiful, but the story lacks credibility.-Janet Gillen, Great Neck Public Library, NY

    This book was great! It was kind of boring in the beggining, though! You should definately read it if you get the chance and want to know some interesting scientific facts! FABULOUS!

    Wow! after I read this book, I immediately went on the internet to look for more books by this mother-daughter team. I recommend it to everyone.
