Kira Kira - Cynthia Kadohata




kira-kira (kee ra kee ra): glittering; shining Glittering. 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 on the street to stare. And it's Lynn who, with her special way of viewing the world, teaches Katie to look beyond tomorrow. But when Lynn becomes desperately ill, and the whole family begins to fall apart, it is up to Katie to find a way to remind them all that there is always something glittering -- kira-kira -- in the future.

Suka banget sama ceritanya. Sudut pandangnya adalah seorang gadis yang masih kecil, namanya Katie, yang tinggal di Amerika bersama keluarganya. Statusnya yang orang Jepang menyulitkan keluarganya untuk bertahan hidup di sana, namun bersama kakak dan pamannya, Katie mengalami hari-hari yang indah.
Saya suka karena gaya penceritaannya random tapi menghanyutkan. Katie juga karena masih kecil, banyak hal-hal polos yang diucapkannya, padahal sebenernya maknanya dalem. Itu yang membuat saya enjoy dan suka sama cerita ini. Recommended banget untuk novel terjemahan.
