Homelessness is a growing epidemic in Hawaii Written in the Sky by Matthew Kaopio draws you into the story of a 14 year old boy living in Ala Moana Beach Park Ikau is a 14 year old boy who came to be homeless when his grandmother his only living relative died Not knowing what to do he took his few remaining possessions and started to live under a bridge at Ala Moana Beach Park in Honolulu HI Throughout the story Ikau learns about the kindness of strangers and the sense of family that develops among mere strangers While dreaming Ikau is visited by his grandmother who is urging him to find a mysterious Mariah Wong The dreams disturb Ikau but he starts to find and follow other signs that lead him on journey where he meets Hawaiian another homeless man who gives him a journal with advice for how to survive Ikau pays forward this first kindness and a cycle of kind actions begins to take shape where a stranger does a kind act for Ikau and he pays it forward to the other homeless in Ala Moana Beach park My son was assigned this book for his Freshman English class I always try to read my children s assigned reading homework as well so that we can discuss the story and I can help with their homework if necessary This story was easily read for a teenager However I found the plot to waver too much For instance Ikau s grandmother urges him to find Mariah Wong But her interaction with Ikau is only for one chapter and only gives him in knowledge of his family history which is fine but as a mother of a teenage boy my hope was that this woman would become a mother figure for Ikau and take care of him Spoiler Alert That didn t happenI did find the random acts of kindness and how the characters would pay those acts forward very rewarding We all hope that we would take similar actions but too often try to avoid homeless people worried that they are mentally ill or criminals Some as this story shares are but not everyone who ends up homeless are afflicted with these issues Sometimes it s bad luck and unfortunate circumstancesOverall I enjoyed the book It is obviously a first work and was prepared without the assistance of a professional nationwide publishing house As someone who writes as well I applaud Kaopio s effort in producing a work that is shared with teens throughout Hawaii
