When Buzz was hit by a car in the first chapter, I was shocked. Up until that point the dialog had been quick and witty. Yet, even though tragedy strikes early in this book, the feel of the book is still quite light-hearted. Yes, Guy is worried about his friend, but most of the story takes place years in the past during second grade when the boys first met.

Guy Wire by Sarah Weeks is the fourth book in the Guy Strang series. It's a prequel framed by Buzz being in the hospital after he's hit by a car.

The flashback explains how Guy and Buzz met and became friends. Although I wanted more of Guy and his current family drama, I warmed to the book as the two boys became friends.

As it turns out I haven't managed to read any of the books in the series in order. Fortunately the books stand alone fairly well, and this one does that the best of all of them.
