A teenager discovers her true identity as a mermaid and helps save her friends from a group of prize-hunters. More
A community of mermaids exists in the South Pacific, and sixteen-year-old Mina Young’s world is upended when she discovers she is one of them.
Mina’s childhood was spent with her best friend Andrew, sheltered from the secrets from the past and her mother’s mysterious death. But when her grandmother invites her to stay on the remote Polynesian island of Okawii for the summer, Mina learns the truth about who she is. While navigating island life, she must deal with her feelings for her language teacher, Keoni, who causes her to question her love for Andrew back at home.
Okawii is a short, delightful romp in the South Pacific.
