From the Publisher
Annotation 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?
Editors Note A portrayal of a young boy's attempt to understand and accept his best friend's sudden death.
