Glittering. That's how Katie Takeshima's sister, Lynn, makes everything seem. The sky is kira-kira because its color is deep but see-through at the same time. The sea is kira-kira for the same reason. And so are people's eyes. When Katie and her family move from a Japanese community to the the Deep South of Georgia, it's Lynn who, with her speical way of viewing the world, teaches Katie to look beyond tomorrow. But when Lynn becomes desperately ill, and the whole family begins to fall apart, it is up to Katie to find a way to remind them all that there is always something glittering - kira-kira - in the future. For ages 10 - 14.
(Key Words: Children's Books, Kira-kira, Cynthia Kadohata, Japanese Americans, Juvenile Literature).
