As the second son, Korean tradition dictates that Young-sup's duty is&nbspto assist his older brother, Kee-sup. Then the boys discover kite fighting.&nbspKee-sup's talents lie in building a kite, fashioning wood and paper to withstand any wind. But it's Young-sup who can feel what the kite wants to do. &nbspWith the New Year Festival coming up, the boys set their sights on the kite fights. Given their combined talents, they could win. But tradition, through the stern voice of their father, says Kee-sup must fly the kite.&nbspCan they stand up against what's always been? &nbsp"With ease and grace, Park brings these long-ago children to life." - School Library Journal
