in Peril! Of course! What better P words could there possibly be?
How about Plantation. The Pineapples that are in Peril are growing in the Tong Plantation. Someone is vandalizing—smashing, gashing, cutting and destroying plants. Leilani and her friends make it their mission to find out who’s doing it and why.
Did you know that it takes 18 months for a Pineapple to grow to maturity? That’s why the destruction has such a negative impact on the Plantation.
Another great P word is Pidgin. No, I’m not talking about a bird, but about the type of local English used by Hawaiians, especially when hanging out with friends. Kainoa uses Pidgin fairly regularly and you’ll have fun reading what he says and then figuring out what he’s talking about by Leilani or Maile’s response to him.
You’ll feel like you’ve been transported to the islands!
