The Haole Substitute takes you on a raucous ride with a 23-year-old surfer who shoots through the squalor of Hawaii's roughest high schools to tackle social and personal problems. Marriage and fatherhood have turned a champion surfer into a sorry excuse for a substitute teacher. Hungry sharks and heavy surf pose no problem, but Paul Kodak is out of his element when it comes to cat fights, school politics, and knife-wielding, jive-talking hoodlums-in-training.

About the Author:

Walt Novak is an English teacher, a world-class surfer, and an award-winning surfing journalist. By turns tragic, comic and revealing, The Haole Substitute is based on the author's personal experiences in Hawaii's classrooms, and they're experiences you won't soon forget.

Review:

Read The Haole Substitute by Walt Novak and learn about stubby-haired fingertips, the Banzai Pipeline, the Calcasieu River, tapeworms and the oldest aerobics instructor in Hawaii. -- Associated Press

Walt Novak is a natural storyteller. The Haole Substitute takes you far beyond the waves and into a sometimes dark - but always human - side of paradise. It's an exceptionally intriguing look into a very intriguing world. --Santa Cruz Sentinel
