"For Robert Carter, life in his coastal Maine hometown is comfortably predictable. But in 1976, on his first day of eighth grade, he meets Nathan Tilly, who changes everything. Nathan is confident, fearless, impetuous and fascinated by kites and flying.

It s there that Nathan s boundless capacity for optimism threatens to overwhelm them both, and where they learn some harsh truths about family, desire, and revenge."--Amazon.com.
