Just who is Kiana Kamaka?

Kiana Kamaka is a show-stopper. I mean, she’s really beautiful.

So what does Kiana look like? She’s nine years old. Her skin is a perfect golden-brown. Her hair flows down her back like a dark chocolate waterfall. Like her best friend, Fallon Connolly, she wears expensive clothes and shoes from the surf shop. And she just LOVES nail polish.

Kiana is pretty good at most things, including swimming and running. So she always does well at the school carnivals.

Kiana is not super smart. But she’s a loyal friend, and that counts for a lot.

She doesn’t really have a problem with Ava Reid. But Fallon does, and that’s good enough for Kiana.

You can meet Kiana in the Birdgirl series. Check out these titles:

Just who is Fallon Connolly?

Fallon Connolly knows she’s pretty. She’s heard her mother say it a zillion times.

So what does Fallon look like? She’s nine years old. She has blue eyes and long shiny blonde hair. She usually wears her hair in a fancy braid, which she tosses over her shoulder. She likes to wear expensive clothes and shoes from the surf shop.

Fallon is good at a lot of things. I mean really good. She goes to athletics in summer and she always comes first in the 100 metres. She also goes to swimming club. She usually comes first in the 50 metres in all swimming styles. So she expects to win all the races she enters at the school carnivals and be the age champion.

Fallon is pretty smart. Not smart enough to win a maths award. But smart enough to get other people into trouble. And to stay out of trouble herself.

Fallon doesn’t like Ava Reid. Not because Ava’s done anything bad to her. But because Ava looks like a creepy piano teacher who used to hit Fallon’s knuckles with a ruler.

Fallon’s best friend is Kiana Kamaka. Together, Fallon and Kiana try to keep Ava from thinking she’s more important than she really is.

Just who is Ava Reid? 

Ava Reid sees herself as an ordinary girl. Not beautiful, not plain, but somewhere in between. I guess a lot of you are just like her.

So what does Ava look like? Well, she’s nine years old. She’s got masses of curly red hair. She thinks it’s puffy and annoying, but I think it’s beautiful. She’s also got bright blue eyes. She wears clothes her mother chooses because she doesn’t like to go shopping.

 Ava is very smart. But she doesn’t want people to know that. Because if they knew, they’d call her a nerd.

 Ava wants to fit in and take part in all the fun things at school. But two girls – Fallon Connolly and Kiana Kamaka – have it in for her. Whenever they can, they call her names and take her stuff. Ava doesn’t know why. She wishes they’d just get lost. But they won’t.
