Adult author Cynthia Kadohata makes her debut in children's literature with Kira-Kira , a fictional memoir of filial love. Katie reflects on her relationship with her teenage sister Lynn and her little brother Sam, and her memory reaches back to her life in Iowa, where her parents ran a grocery store. Unfortunately, there were "hardly any Oriental people in Iowa," and the failure of the business forced the family to move to Georgia, where they joined the many Japanese workers providing cheap labor for the poultry industry. For Katie and Lynn, prejudice is part of everyday life in the rural South of the s: Poultry workers are considered second-class citizens and the Japanese workers are regarded with suspicion. Katie's mother puts money aside for her lifelong dream of buying a house for the family, and her father works long hours at the plant.
Table of Contents
A Japanese-American family struggles to build a new life in the Deep South of Georgia in this luminous novel, winner of the Newbery Medal. 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 them on the street to stare. And it's Lynn who, with her special way of viewing the world, teaches Katie to look beyond tomorrow.
