Setting Free the Kites by Alex George 324 pages

Narrator, Robert Carter, leads a lonely life.  He is bullied, has an older brother with a degenerative disease, and must work every summer at his family’s amusement park on the coast of Maine.  His solitary life changes the day he meets Nathan Tilly, a daring adventurer who just moved to the East coast from Texas.  In this coming-of-age novel, Robert learns, with the help of Nathan and a few others, about love, loss and loyalty.

Setting Free the Kites is one of those novels that almost everyone will enjoy, however; it did nothing for me.  Most readers will find it heart warming but it left me flat.
