Kira-Kira (kee ra kee ra)is a Japanese word for glittering; shining. This unforgettable story is a coming-of-age tale of one family's difficulties in adapting to a post-World War II society that is reluctant to welcome a Japanese family that is laboring in Georgia's poultry plants. The story features Katie, her older sister Lynn and their younger brother, Sammy. When Lynn grows ill and eventually dies, it makes Katie realize that she must assume even more responsibility. Removed from the shadow of her high-achieving older sister, she even begins to improve in her schoolwork. This Newbery Medal winner story deals with family relationships and the illness and death of a close family member in a sensitive, realistic manner.
