Parker, L., & Egbert, C. (n.d.). One boy, no water.
11 year old Alexander Kaonakai Westin--Zader for short--is allergic to water. One drop on his skin sears like white-hot lava. Too bad a lifetime of carrying an umbrella and staying away from the beach isn't the answer, especially when his popular almost twin brother Jay looks destined to become the next Hawaiian surfing sensation
