A New York Times Bestselling Author
Robert Carter and Nathan Tilly are unlikely friends. Robert is cautious and reticent; Nathan is curious and daring. They meet in 1976 on the first day of eighth grade in a coastal Maine town and form a bond that is forged in the crucible of two family tragedies. Setting Free the Kites is a poignant and moving exploration of the pain, joy, and glories of young friendship.
