Publisher Comments:

andlt;bandgt;kira-kira (kee ra kee ra): glittering; shiningandlt;/bandgt; Glittering. That's how Katie Takeshima's sister, Lynn, makes everything seem. The sky is andlt;iandgt;kira-kiraandlt;/iandgt; because its color is deep but see-through at the same time. The sea is andlt;iandgt;kira-kiraandlt;/iandgt; for the same reason. And so are people's eyes. When Katie and her family move from a Japanese community in Iowa to the Deep South of Georgia, it's Lynn who explains to her why people stop on the street to stare. And it's Lynn who, with her special 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 — andlt;iandgt;kira-kiraandlt;/iandgt; — in the future.

Synopsis:

Glittering. That's how Katie Takeshima's sister, Lynn, makes everything seem. When their family moves from a Japanese community in Iowa to the Deep South of Georgia, it's Lynn who explains to her why people stop them on the street to stare.
