This enthralling novel, adapted for the Alexander Payne film The Descendants, traces the fate of a prominent Hawaiian family, descended from royalty and missionaries, and their struggle over a choice piece of land on the coast of Kauai. Matthew King's daughters -- Scottie, a feisty ten-year-old, and Alex, a seventeen-year-old recovering drug addict -- are out of control, and their charismatic, thrill-seeking mother lies in a coma after a boat-racing accident.
