It’s not nice to fool Mother Nature.

“Having a grant keeps you mobile,” Emma said. “It looks good on your CV in case you want to go somewhere else. Especially in your discipline. It would really make you stand out. I mean, how many business communication professors have grants?”

“That’s a good point,” I said, “but I would never say that to Donnie about staying mobile. He’s already paranoid about that, I don’t know why. He’s afraid that deep down I’m planning to leave Mahina and move back to the mainland.”

“That’s a pretty common fear,” Emma said. “That’s why it takes us a while to warm up to you people.”

You people?”

“Malihini,” Emma said. “Mainland transplants. Immigrants. Invasive species. You move here, you make friends, you decide you can’t hack it here, and you end up leaving us.”

“I’m not going anywhere,” I said. “Did you just call me an invasive species?”

Molly is thrilled to be included in a grant to investigate attitudes toward biotechnology. But she immediately finds herself embroiled in the deadly fight between big biotech and anti-GMO activists. At the same time, she tries (with uneven success) to adjust to some major developments in her personal life.
