SummaryAdd a Summary
"Katie Takeshima worships her older sister, Lynn who knows everything and takes care of Katie while their parents are working long hours in their small town in the late 1950s. It's Lynn who shows Katie the glittering beauty (kira-kira) of the stars which prepares Katie for the prejudice she will encounter as one of the few Japanese American kids school. But when Katie 10, Lynn 14, falls ill, and everything changes. Slowly the roles are reversed and Katie becomes the caregiver and does what Lynn has taught her." (Novelist Review)
