Nanea Mitchell may be the youngest in her family, but she knows she's old enough to do grown-up things. Before she can prove she's ready for responsibility, the unthinkable happens. Japan attacks Pearl Harbor - the naval base where her father works - and America is at war! Now Nanea must cope with missing friends and family member, rumors of additional attacks, and lonely nighttime blackouts. As the war wears on, Nanea faces difficult chores and choices. With the spirit of aloha - love, understanding and compassion - Nanea helps others in ways she never imagined.
