Sharks in the Time of Saviors

Kawai Strong Washburn

Nainoa Flores is known as the boy who was rescued by sharks after falling off a cruise ship in Hawai’i. The strange abilities he acquires after this begin to drive his family apart, while he also struggles with his newly discovered powers while working as a paramedic. His brother Dean is obsessed with college athletics and wealth and fame, and sister Kaui navigates an unforgiving academic workload to forge her own independence. When supernatural events and tragedy revisit the family, they have to confront the meaning of heritage and the cost of survival. A stunning debut from Hawai‘i-born Kawai Strong Washburn.
