About Swimming Sideways by CL Waters
What do you do when your world has fallen apart, and there doesn’t seem to be a way to put it back together?
Abby Kaiāulu (Kaw ee aw oo loo) gets the chance to start over when her family relocates from Hawaii to a small town on the Oregon coast.
But she’s hiding a secret.
Leaving the past and the cultural lessons of her Hawaiian grandfather behind, Abby redefines who she is to hide it. There’s Good Abby – she makes and follows the rules – and there’s Bad Abby – she always questions them. But both leave Abby wondering: which one is she really?
Her road of self-discovery takes her on a journey where she must discover the truth of who she is as a daughter, a sister, a woman, a Hawaiian and as a friend.
But just when she thinks her world might be coming back together, it falls apart all over again.
Just finished reading Swimming Sideways (Book 1 of The Cantos Chronicles) by CL Walters. The book is a beautiful young adult novel with relatable and heartbreaking characters. I really enjoyed getting a glimpse into The Hawaiian culture and language. The love triangle kept be going back and forth on which love interest I was rooting for. The cliff hanger will have you running to amazon to buy the next book.
