it was amazing

This story is chock-full of endearing characters. It's a funny and moving portrayal of what happens when one family, of two cultures, comes together. My heart went out to Hiroshi, who deals with feelings of alienation and confusion when his family moves from Japan to the American suburbs in the middle of the school year. His relationship with his American cousin, Skye, rings true with misunderstandings and rivalry. Told from both Skye's and Hiroshi's points of view, I cheered on both kids as they made their way toward dealing with a difficult situation. Truly a delightful read.

And if any reader, adult or child, comes away from this book without a strong desire to give kite-battles a try, I'd be surprised.
