Kaiulani: The People's Princess
May 6, 1889
At Iolani Palace, Father and I met with Papa Moi and Mama Moi in the throne room. Papa Moi was solemn as he reminded me that it will be my responsibility to do as well as possible, and in that way, further the hopes of our nation. I was glad that I have never admitted to him how fearful I am about leaving. I think he would find that petty, as I go off not for myself, but for all of the Hawaiians I will someday lead.
"I will not fail, Papa, will I?" I asked Father, once we were in our carriage and on the way back to Ainahau.
"It is not even a possibility", he said, his voice full of confidence.

Not one of my favourites. But I guess that's cos I don't know much about Hawaii. Read full review

This book is really good. It is just so sad though. I literally cried at the end. If you haven't finished but decided to stop then you've made a really bad choice. Give it a chance and you'll end up really liking it. And if you don't, then at least you didn't judge it by its cover. Read full review
