Malia Maunakea's thrilling Hawaiian debut—now in paperback! Curses aren't real. At least, that's what twelve-year-old, part-Hawaiian Anna Leilani Kamaʻehu thinks when she listens to her grandmother's folktales about sacred flowers and family guardians. Anna's friends back home in Colorado don't believe in legends, either. They're more interested in science and sports—real, tangible things that stand in total contrast to Anna’s family’s embarrassing stories. So when Anna goes back to Hawaiʻi to visit her Tūtū, she has no interest in becoming the heir to her family’s history; she’s set on having a touristy, fun vacation. But when Anna accidentally insults Pele the fire goddess by destroying her lehua blossom, a giant hawk swoops in and kidnaps her best friend, and she quickly learns just how real these moʻolelo are. In order to save her friends and family, Anna must now battle mythical creatures, team up with demigods and talking bats, and evade the traps Pele hurls her way. For if Anna hopes to undo the curse, she will have to dig deep into her Hawaiian roots and learn to embrace all of who she is.

"Learning to siva from the heart... Tala loves watching her Aunty Sina's graceful steps in the taualuga, a traditional Samoan dance, where her hands curl like rolling waves and her feet glide across the floor like canoes. Yet when Tala tries to siva, her legs are too wobbly, her arms are too stiff, and most of all, she doesn't have the same glow as when Aunty dances. Tala tries to muster the courage to perform at her Grandma's birthday. But she freezes on stage. Will she find the strength and inspiration to help her dance? Kealani Netane's glowing debut picture book is a relatable tale of a young girl finding her own rhythm through the love and guidance of her family. Meanwhile New York Times bestselling illustrator, Dung Ho's cheerful, lush art creates a spellbinding trance that will inspire readers to get up and siva"--
