No one, least of all his best friend, dreamed that Jamie's exuberance and a harmless prank could end in his sudden death. But when it does, his friend must find the strength to bear his grief and his feeling that he might have saved his friend. ALA Notable Children's Book.
From the Publisher:
A portrayal of a young boy's attempt to understand and accept his best friend's sudden death.
Jamie was a real show-off--always exaggerating things. I was his best friend, though, and we did everything together. That the day we were helping old Mrs. Houser in her yard, Jamie had to poke a stick into a bee hole and then show off by writhing on the ground while we all ran away from the angry swarm. How could I know that my best friend wasn't showing off and needed my help?


"A difficult and sensitive subject, treated with taste and honesty, is woven into a moving story about a believable little boy."
