Military Brats in Hawaii

"On the Other Side"

Children of military personnel become used to moving to different places, changing schools, and meeting new people at the drop of a hat.

In this true story, two sisters spend time after school exploring the rainforest near their mountain home in Hawaii. What happens when they ignore a military warning?

A perfect “right and wrong” story. Discussion questions and vocabulary list included if used for grades 4-6.

But it’s also a great story for families, having been published in a military magazine. (p.s. It’s about me when I was a kid.)

“I adore your story. It’s such an authentic scoop of a rather exotic childhood.”—David Greenberg, author of A Tugging String

“You captured that childhood sense of adventure and curiosity that got us into all sorts of hairbreadth ‘scapes.” – David Ervin, Editor in Chief, Military Experience and the Arts
