kira-kira (kee ra kee ra): glittering; shining 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 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 --
"kira-kira" -- in the future.
