Breathe me Home | NaNoWriMo 2016
Stacy Harris is probably the only 6th grade girl in the world who hates living in Hawaii. But ever since the Navy transferred her dad, mom, older sister, and younger brother to the tropical paradise, she's been miserable. Until her teacher assigns the class a project. They must interview an adult native Hawaiian, learn a traditional Hawaiian custom, and demonstrate it to the class. Easy enough for a straight A student. Unless that student makes it her life purpose to avoid other people. And to never, ever make friends. But Stacy is about to embark on a journey that will show her just how far from home she's truly wandered. And she'll discover her heart in the most unlikely of places, and with the most unlikely of people.
Breathe Me Home is the second book of my Navy Brat historical books, each a stand alone novel. It is set in 1972 Hawaii, where my father was stationed at the time. The author was only 5 years old in 1972, but I can still remember what it was like to live in paradise. Unlike Stacy, my character, I loved my life there. Of course, at 5, you love everything. I'll be posting my rough draft during NaNoWriMo 2016. I hope you'll offer your feedback, because this will follow the first book of this series to my agent, then on to a traditional publisher. Thanks for your help. I truly love my readers here. You inspire me to do more, write better, and simply enjoy the adventure.
