We Are Brothers by by Yves Nadon and Jean Claverie (Ex-Library HC/DJ)
Every summer, two brothers swim to the rock, and one jumps off. But this summer, it's time for both of them to take the leap. In this moving coming-of-age story, a younger brother discovers newfound strength, courage, and joy, thanks to the support of his older brother—and the persuasiveness of his own imagination. Warm pastel illustrations lend a timeless quality to youthful trepidation and triumphant achievement in this celebration of summertime.
