Kira-Kira by Cynthia Kadohata
A book review by Faith Thompson
Two sisters share a dream — their own house one day. Lynn truly wants to live in her own home, whether it’s in Georgia or California, and Katie wants whatever Lynn wants.
As the girls grow up, they find themselves growing distant because of their age difference. But then Lynn is diagnosed with a horrible disease. At that point, Katie finds herself back in her sister’s life, and she and her parents work to make Lynn’s dream come true — her own house.
