BOOK PROMO: FIGHTING THE CURRENT BY ANGELA PENNIMAN








Fight for what you love with Kaleia in "Fighting The Current".

Seventeen-year-old Kaleia lives in a small town on the northern shore of Oahu, Hawaii. To avoid constant tension at home from her cold-hearted aunt and meek mother, she spends most of her time with her "true" family: her two best friends, Hayden and Kane, and her beloved mentor, Kekoa. Together they enjoy the vast expanses of shoreline, surfing and appreciating the beauty of the island. 

Kaleia feels as if nothing could harm her makeshift family.However, the summer before her senior year of high school, a series of unsettling events shifts the sand beneath her feet, forcing her to lose her stable footing. A recurring nightmare about her real father, a man her mother and aunt refuse to talk about, starts to plague Kaleia again, reminding her that a part of her is always missing. An art contest—her only way to afford college—has a fast-approaching deadline, though she is hesitant to enter. Unfamiliar feelings surface when Hayden returns home from vacation. To make matters worse, Kekoa suffers a stroke and ends up fighting for his life in the hospital.

As Kaleia tries to overcome the rough waves life has tossed at her, a shocking secret leaves her flailing in the aftermath. In order to survive, she must fight the rough current and summon her inner strength to face her fears, her past, and her future.
