Anywhere But Paradise, by Anne Bustard

Summary: In 1960 twelve-year-old Peggy Sue and her family move to the island of Oahu, and she is finding it anything but paradise, because from the first day at school she is bullied and made fun of by the Hawaiian children, and she is worried sick about her beloved cat who is in mandatory quarantine–and then the tsunami hits Hilo where her parents have gone on business.
