Content descriptions

Summary, etc.:
In 1995 Hawaii, seven-year-old Nainoa Flores falls overboard from a cruise ship. When sharks appear in the water, everyone fears the worst. But instead, Noa is gingerly delivered to his mother in the jaws of a shark, marking his story as the stuff of legends. Nainoa's family hails his rescue as a sign of favor from ancient Hawaiian gods--one that appears validated after he exhibits new abilities. But as time passes, this supposed divine favor begins to drive the family apart. When supernatural events revisit the Flores family, they are forced to reckon with the bonds of family, the meaning of heritage, and the cost of survival." -- page [4] of cover.
