This book is really cool. It shows how family and friends support each other. Kanani helps her cousin, Rachel, who has come to stay a month. Kanani thinks that Rachel is kind of stiff and brags a little, but overall a pretty nice girl. She thinks that Rachel needs help. But when they get into a fight, Kanani feels bad. A funny, out of the ordinary, circumstance (a seal caught in a net) brings the girls back together. Kanani is American Girl’s girl of the year, I really like her!
