9781566479493: Up Among the Stars

The story of Ikau, a young
Hawaiian man in search of a
place to belong, continues in this
sequel to Written in the Sky.
He is still living in the park,
watching the prowlings of a
mangy cat, getting caught up in
a swarm of golden butterflies,
sleeping under a bridge, having
flying dreams. His wanderings take him
downtown, to the scuzziness
around A'ala Park, to the planetarium at Bishop Museum,
to a graveyard where he timetravels
back to an earlier Honolulu,
to a rehabilitation hospital, and to
a rally at Iolani Palace. And at
last, among the Hawaiians there,
he finds blessedly what he has
always wanted and needed: the
embrace of family. He belongs,
and life is good.
