It had been a great day. Perhaps the Best Day…
A seaside village many years ago.
A boy makes a new friend who says he has always wanted to come to the seashore. This is his last wish, to see where the world ends and the blue begins—because he is dying. “Then we should do something fun today,” the younger boy announces. Fun! With all the doctors and hospitals, there’s been little time for fun. But what should they do?
Flying a kite is great fun on a windy day. But first they must make their kite. And they’ll need supplies. And the money to buy them. And they will have to get around all the grown-ups who might stand in their way. And so this never-to-be-forgotten day begins.
This is a story of friendship. Of first loss. And of seizing the day.

Katy Grant grew up in Tennessee and decided at age eight she wanted to be a writer after reading a
biography of Louisa May Alcott. (But for some strange reason she never got around to reading
Little Women until she was an adult.) For many years she taught composition and creative writing
courses at university and community colleges. She currently lives in northern Arizona with her husband Eric.
She is the author of eight novels for middle readers, including the popular SUMMER CAMP SECRETS series and HIDE AND SEEK, which has been nominated for many state reading lists.
