    Book details

Vacationing in Hawaii, 12-year-old Jack and his almost 11-year-old sister Ashley snorkel and discover the island?s wildlife. Then they are swept up in a mystery with Danny, a young boy from Vietnam, who offers to take them exploring. While climbing Devastation Trail on the Kilauea Iki crater, they are chased by a mysterious woman in red with long black hair who shouts at them in Hawaiian. Is she Pele, come to exact her revenge because the kids ate ohelo berries without offering one to her first? Ashley is convinced that the woman is Pele, but Jack isn?t so sure, and Danny isn?t talking. If she?s not Pele, however, why did she chase them and how did she disappear into the lava cave? This fast-paced novel combines science, suspense, youthful camaraderie, Hawaiian history and culture, and breathtaking descriptions of the island?s natural landscapes and lava flows?a unique combination certain to capture youthful imaginations. A map that will help young readers picture the volcanoes at Hawaiian National Park is included.

    I think this book was great becsue of its unique plot. I have never read anything like it. All readers should read this book. Although the beggining started out a little slow, the end was full of suspense. I thank the authors for writing such a wonderful book.

    A fun adventure in Hawaii! I am enjoying the National Parks Mysteries, as they truly give kids an excellent view of America's wonderful heritage and land.Note to Parents: The only thing I disapprove of in this book is the fact that the kids somewhat believe that they are being chased by Pele, the Hawaiian goddess of volcanoes. I do not generally enjoy taking the time to read fiction that makes mythical figures seem all to real -- but it was written all in fun.Still looking forward to read about the next National Park.
