Maile Onakea is Leilani’s best friend and one of the official members of The Hawaiian Island Detective Club. Maile is Leilani’s best cheerleader. She suspects Leilani has a crush on her older brother, Kainoa, but can’t really understand how her friend could like her “surfer dude” brother. Ahhh . . . sisters!
M is also for Mahalo which means Thank You in Hawaiian. Mystery is also a great M word since that’s what this series is all about!
And, finally, M is for Mahhhhhhhm! Any idea who screams, shrieks, hollers or yells this a lot? Of course—Kimo!
See you every Monday and Thursday as I go through the alphabet, giving you little snippets of words from Pineapples in Peril (Book 1 of The Hawaiian Island Detective Club.) It’s the ABCs OF THE HIDC!—until the release date for Pineapples on October 2, 2012.
