Oahu author announces debut novel Oahu native Jen Angeli announces her debut novel “Kino and the King” expected to release this week. “Kino and the King” is a novel filled with Hawaiian history, customs, language, and lore. Based on real people, places, and events, both historical and current, the story educates as it entertains. Written for middle school students, it’s an enjoyable read for kids and adults alike. The book tells the story of Kino Kahele who hoped for a mobile device but instead received a shimmery rock as a present — given to her by her grandmother. She tells Kino the stone is filled with mana, the lifeblood of the islands. It was passed down for generations specifically for Kino on her 12th birthday — to help her find her destiny. While hiding from bullies in the grass hut at Bishop Museum, Kino dropped her special stone into a conch shell. With a flash of bright light, she is transported to 1825, just five years after the missionaries arrived in Hawaii. She meets an 11-year-old boy, weeks before he is crowned Kamehameha III. Together, they go on a journey around Oahu, gathering the four items a kahuna said she needed to fulfill her destiny and return home. Angeli grew up on Oahu and graduated from St. Francis High School in the 1980s. She now lives in Pearl City.
