Ahhh . . . yes—Kimo! He’s Leilani’s ten-year-old brother who really, really wants to be part of the detective club. Kimo drives Leilani bonkers while trying to prove he’s a great investigator. Mostly he just manages to annoy his teenage sister and her friends.
What do you think might happen? Will Kimo succeed? Or will he just get himself into even more trouble? Will he spoil things for Leilani?
And then there’s Kainoa, Leilani’s surfing buddy and instructor since she was eight. He’s the 16-year-old older brother of Leilani’s best friend, Maile. And—you guessed it—Leilani has a crush on him. But then something happens and Leilani fears she may have lost “the love of her life” and her surfing buddy forever.
Ahhh . . . the angst of being a young teen. Remember those days? I sure do.
