Hiro Loves Kite

“I’m not usually one for romance, but this was exquisite. Never mind the fact that it draws inspiration from one of my favourite stories of all time (Peter Pan), it is outstanding all on its own. Hiro Loves Kite is a mesmerising continuation of their tale. I cannot get enough of Lauren Nicolle Taylor’s writing, the poetic storytelling that weaves such darkness and beauty into every page.” —Bethany Cousins

We offer our wounds and scars. Understanding that is part of what makes us beautiful.

Nora finally has her beloved sister Frankie back, but that’s just the beginning of their struggles. She must now become Kite―a stronger, more independent version of herself―a king and a guardian.

Kettle has Kite’s heart. But something holds him back; a feeling that he doesn’t deserve good things. It’s a looming shadow that threatens to separate them. Kettle must accept that he is also Hiro: a Japanese American with every right to happiness and freedom.

Hiro loves Kite―but Kite won’t wait forever for him to tell her. And now they’re standing on icy ground. The leverage they had on Kite’s abusive father has wavered, and life on the street is affecting Frankie’s health. Snow is gathering at the station doors, and doubts are piling high…they must rely on each other, and believe in the magic that got them this far. If they don’t, it’s not just their future in jeopardy―but the fates of all the street kids in their care―all the Kings.
