2 brothers overcome their rivalry in 1473 Korea to win the kite fighting contest for the King. The characters are well developed, showing the younger son's chaffing at always having to be content with being second, the thoughtfulness of the older brother who has the responsibility of the family honor always shoved on him, the loneliness of the boy king. A quick read, but also several ideas to think about.
