In England, she says it isn't that bad. She is homesick though. Kaiulani tells about how she likes England and its way of life. She even makes friends. But, then she finds out that her Aunt is now Queen of Hawaii. After her aunt would pass away, Kaiulani would inherit the throne. Sadly, that was never meant to be full filled.
When she arrives back at her home, she feels good to get back to her tree, peakoks, and the climate. Then she finds out that Hawaii is going to become part of the US. So, her family gets around the Queen of Hawaii at the palace, the Hawaiian anthem played for the last time, and its flag lowered and the US flag raised. That was it. The monchary of Hawaii was destroyed. As Kaiulani grows up, she struggles to get Hawaii's monchary back. She couldn't, she tried. In her 20's she died. Many think because of a broken heart. Hawaii would never forget Kaiulani. She would have been a wonderful Queen. A Queen that would fight for her country.
