Summary
from Goodreads:
"That
boy is like the bamboo...foreign and unknown in this environment. But like the
bamboo, if you plant and nurture it in the right soil, it has the potential to
grow vibrant and strong."



Walking with a pronounced limp all her life has never stopped fifteen-year-old
Kiva Mau from doing what she loves. While most girls her age are playing sports
and perfecting their traditional Samoan dance, Kiva finds serenity in her
sketchbook and volunteering at the run-down art center her extended family
owns, nestled amongst the bamboo.



When seventeen-year-old Ryler Cade steps into the art center for the first
time, Kiva is drawn to the angry and misguided student sent from abroad to
reform his violent ways. Scarred and tattooed, a friendship is formed when the
gentle Kiva shows him kindness and beauty through art, until circumstances
occur beyond their control and they are pulled away.



Immersed in the world of traditional art and culture, this is the story of
self-sacrifice and discovery, of acceptance and forbearance, of overcoming
adversity and finding one’s purpose. Spanning years, it is a story about an
intuitive girl and a misunderstood boy and love that becomes real when tested.
