Amy Zhao - Saving Maui

Kids will love this story and learn from it. 

In Pia the Pinena Fairy - Saving Maui, our heroine Pia is in Maui, Hawaii. She's on a mission with her friends to save Friendship and the world from the villain Slate of Chaos. Along their mission, Pia and her friends are ambushed by cursed pirates, meet friendly mermaids, and enter the wilting Coral Maze. They battle against an army of giant spiders led by Slate of Chaos himself. 

In order to save Maui, Hawaii, from the corrupt villain Slate of Chaos, our protagonist Pia the Pinena Fairy and her fairy friends go on a daring mission. Along their journey, they meet friendly mermaids but are ambushed by fierce, cursed pirate fairies.

They summon demons, encounter shifty shadow monsters, and battle an army of giant spiders led by none other than the evil Slate of Chaos. As they fight for their lives and for Maui, the friends find out with horror - Slate’s true evil master plan.

When it seems that all hope shall be lost, Pia and her friends now come to realize and value just how important friendship, stamina, and grit is. A heavy burden rests on their shoulders. Is it perhaps too heavy? Too large?

What they do next will shape and determine the destiny of Maui, Hawaii – and… the world.

At the moment, Amy Zhao is a 5th grader in Northshore School District and wants to become a great author and a bestseller someday. Saving Maui is the 3rd book in her Pia the Pinena Fairy series (each book is an independent story). Amy has been writing in the past 4 years, and met many local inspirational young readers that were excited to read her books. Amy came up with the story idea for this book when she was on vacation at Maui, Hawaii during her 4th grade winter break. She visited many local places and talked with the people there. She was impressed by the tropical paradise. Amy took many notes during her visit of Maui, and started her story writing right after that. She finished the book when she entered 5th grade. Amy likes to write and share the writing experience and lessons she learned. Many kids like the stories she wrote - as a matter of fact, we are glad to know that some kids started writing after reading Amy's books and writing tips she shared on her site. That makes Amy very happy - during her previous Author Event, Amy said "All kids can read and write," and indeed. 

As always, Amy is thrilled to meet new readers, and is looking forward to meeting you at her Author Event!
