Blu's Hanging by Lois Ann Yamanaka
Blu's Hanging

beach_bum_baby, July 1, 2008

Blu's Hanging is a beautiful book. It does contain strong subject matter so I most definitely would not recommend it to someone immature. I found it difficult to read at parts, but I'm glad I finished it. As a kama'aina I know that this is what really goes on in some places of Hawaii and I'm glad someone had the guts to write about it rather than sweep it under the rug as so many are apt to do to protect the pristine tourist catering image of the islands.
