Literature: Kira-Kira
A novel by Cynthia Kadohata that won the Newbery Medal for Children's Literature in 2005.

Taking place in the 1950s, the story revolves around Katie Takeshima, a Japanese-American girl who looks up to her sister, Lynn, because she reminds Katie to always look at the bright side of life by knowing that the future is always glittering: kira-kira. After her parents move from Iowa to Georgia to get jobs at chicken hatcheries, Lynn develops anemia and later lymphoma.

Do Not Confuse With the Japanese Visual Novel Kira-Kira.
