Guy can't imagine life without his best friend, Buzz. They've been inseparable since second grade, when fate tossed them together with a little help from a bad haircut, green boxer shorts, flying rice cakes, and a couple of hard-earned nicknames. So when an accident threatens to tear them apart, Guy finds himself clinging to precious memories of the friendship he'd wished for all his life.
The ups and downs and inevitable complications of friendship have never been more funny, poignant, and sweet than in this fourth installment of the Guy series.
Wishes can come true, but sometimes the things we wish for arrive in the most unlikely of packages.

Grade 3-6-Guy Wire features the same characters as the three previous books. Weeks frames their earlier exploits with a bike accident that happens just before Buzz's 14th birthday. As Guy sits in the hospital waiting room hoping for the best and fearing the worst, he flashes back to when he and his friend first met in second grade. Buzz is not popular when he moves to the neighborhood. After all, his real name is Fennimore, he's wearing a suit, and he is overly polite to adults. Guy has his doubts about him until the new kid burps the alphabet for him. In keeping with the earlier stories, Guy's mom does everything wrong, resulting in some funny situations. The breezy conversations and observations will continue to please kids, but sometimes the boys' language, insights, and abilities don't mesh with their younger age. Children just starting second grade don't usually say "convinced" or "miraculously," read complicated letters, or treat their mothers as harshly as adolescents do. Still, there are touching moments in this lightweight and funny novel, the characters are as likable as ever, and Buzz's recovery, while abrupt, is certainly a relief.
