In Seoul, Korea, in 1473, Young-sup and his older brother Kee-sup are excited about the New Year kite competition. Young-sup is an expert at kite flying. He knows just what his kite wants him to do. Kee-sup has trouble handling his kite, but can build and design a kite fit for a king. Each brother knows his own talents as they practice together for the New Year kite-fighting competition. But according to tradition, Kee-sup, the first-born son, must represent the family. Young-sup knows he must help his older brother and stay in second place. But that doesn’t stop him from hoping for the chance to show his great skill as a kite fighter.

3.0 The Kite Fighters
I almost gave up on this a couple of chapters in but kept reading because it's so short. I've enjoyed Park's other historical middle grade fiction, and this one is very much the same (A Single Shard is the best, Seesaw Girl is on par with The Kite Fighters): a slice of life in historical Korea.
