Summary
After having a fight, two friends spend the day ignoring each other, until the lure of a game of jump rope helps them to forget about being mad. It's the hottest, stickiest day of the summer. A fat sun in the sky day. An eating ice pops on the porch day. And for Kishi and Renee, it's a best friends breakup day. Each girl sits on her own front porch, waiting for the other to apologize, even though they know they'll never speak to each other again, no matter how bored they get. But then the sounds of feet slapping the pavement and voices chanting double-dutch rhymes drift up the avenue, and neither one can resist going out in the street to play. This lyrical friendship story, the first collaboration of two outstanding artists, pairs a rhythmic text with distinctive collage illustrations. Its subtle message about sharing and forgiveness will resonate with anyone who has ever experienced the ups and downs of being, and having, a best friend
