(From the publisher):
Mahealani Wong was named for the full moon she was born under as her grandmother believed it would bring her good luck. She has a generous helping of her father's full Hawaiian lips and the rebellious heart of an American teenager. Through voices few readers have heard before, Kathleen Tyau explores the bounds of ethnicity in Mahi's Hawaiian-Chinese family, in which identities mingle and twine together. The adventurous Mahi tries to get more than the "little too much" that is enough for the loving and hard-to-let-go-of-each-other Wong family. Filled with love and food, this story of an island family is an exuberant banquet of characters and tales.
