Synopsis: "Lee does a commendable job capturing the voice of a disaffected teenage boy. Gabe’s struggles come across as authentic and true to life... vibrant depictions of Hawaiian culture and language—vital to the characters’ lives—are skillfully blended into the story... a worthwhile glimpse into a colorful culture." --Kirkus Reviews
"Lee deftly presents teenage angst and the feelings of being uprooted from home and dropped in a completely new environment. Her portrayal of Hawaiian culture is honest and straightforward... Employing a realistic writing style, Lee authentically describes how many people deal with grief and change. This comedic and fast-paced coming-of-age story is engaging...A great title for those looking to add diverse works to their collection." --School Library Journal
Everything in Gabriel Kane Foster's life is shady: his family's move from California to Hawaii immediately after his sister Makena dies, his parents' strange relationship with the relatives, and the fact that his deranged Mother is constantly carrying his sister around in a bottle.
And then there are the secrets. So many family secrets. Can Gabe stay strong while adjusting to his new life without Makena?
“Makena’s Shadow” is a Young Adult novel that takes place in Pupukea on the famed North Shore of O’ahu. It is a coming of age story written from the point of view of a thirteen (and-a-half) year-old boy who, born and raised in the mainland, is forced to immerse himself in the culture of his ancestors. Without his older sister beside him, or his grieving parents to guide him, he finds himself lost, angry, and alone in a world that doesn’t make sense.
When Gabe's cousins challenge him, he takes them on and discovers the depth and beauty of his heritage, the calm that the ocean brings, and the excitement of the sport of outrigger canoe paddling.

About the Author: Multi-ethnic (Kanaka Maoli / Asian / Apache / Caucasian) writer MONICA K.K. LEE is the author of a poetry book, and Fricken Kids, a novel. Her short stories and poetry have been published in several literary journals. She was born and raised on Oahu where she graduated with her BA in English.
