From Carnegie Medalist Geraldine McCaughrean comes a dazzling story of adventure, betrayal, family, and sacrifice set in the dramatic world of thirteenth-century China.

In the colorful, dangerous world of 13th-century China, 12-year-old Haoyou escapes from his family's poverty by becoming a kite rider.
