    GREAT MOVING STORY

    This is a wonderfully written novel. It was easy to read and moving. I felt like I was right there with these young men. A great read anytime!

    A must-have book; what a great story!

    Wow! I was glued to this book from the time I read the first page. Short chapters make it an easy read and William Maxwell's prose is poetic and succinct. You need to read this-anyone who has ever had a crush on a same-sex athletic type (and who among us reading this review hasn't?) will relate to the unique relationship between the title characters. Don't miss this one!

Quick version:<p>Wispleap was mates with Suneagle they had two kits but they were really just Suneagles little siblings and then Blueclaws and Wispleap had three kits Dawnspot Duststorm and Truelight but Blueclaws had another biological kit name Darkflare WHO turned evil along with Truelight but Truelight was expecting Tawnclaws kits so she had them off in the woods somewhere and died only one of which lived and came to LeafClan and was adopted by Ferncloud she called Rushriver and then Ferncloud had a kit named Ravenfeather who had kits with Nightstorm. Duststorm somewhere along the way had three kits with Rosespirit called Bravelight Spottedcreek and Cedarflame. *deep breath.*
