This is not an ordinary book: it's a BookCrossing book! BookCrossing books are world travelers - they like to have adventures and make new friends...and with your help, they can even write home to say what they've been doing! (You may remain anonymous if you wish.)

Claimed from the little library on Kaimuki Avenue with thanks; zoomable photo here.

The largest island in the Hawaiian chain is called Hawaii, and that's where Lovey Nariyoshi lives...in a world quite different from the beach at Waikiki. Lois-Ann Yamanaka is very good at writing in Hawaiian Creole English (usually just called Pidgin here)...but some readers may find it a little challenging. Oh, and Bully is a calf that Lovey's father brings home....

An interesting example of early As.-Am. fiction. Having a bit of trouble getting into this - the voice / writing seems a bit at once too intimate and also too casual? The Holden Caulfield reference seems apt, and I usually do like Catcher in the Rye. Hard to describe. I will release it to a local LFL that gets significant circulation, and see if there are any takers there. Glad to learn of this author.
