Over the moon to see LEI representing Hawaiʻi on the @todayshow thanks to @theweekjuniorus READ ACROSS AMERICA! Watch the full video and read the full article in the links in my bio as there are book recommendations for every state. Great ideas if you are traveling or just want to escape.

Thanks again to @penguinworkshop, @mclairecruz and @kaaillustration for such a gorgeous cover! I never get tired of seeing her.

So excited that @jennifer.robideau 's narration of LEI has placed the story on @yalsa1957 's list of 2024 Amazing Audiobooks for Young Adults! Thank you to the wonderful bloggers who enjoyed the adventure and voted for this Hawaiian story!

If you haven't had a chance yet to take a listen, it is available on audible, libro, Spotify, your library (if it isn't, just put in a request and hopefully they'll get it for you!) and more!
