Description

From the #1 New York Times bestselling illustrator of She Persisted comes a book about friendship, flying, and facing your fears together.

Max and Marla do everything together. So when Max makes a kite and wants to go fly it, he can't understand why Marla doesn't want to join! And when an autumn wind makes a mess in their yard, Marla finds a perfect pile of leaves to hide away in. Little does she know that she can't avoid the kite forever! All she needs is the courage to believe in herself.

In this heartwarming tale of flying and fun, Max and Marla learn that the best way to face your fears is to have a best friend at your side.
