Kira-Kira by Cynthia Kadohata
Katie Takeshima loves one person more than anyone else in the world, her older sister Lynn. Unlike those older sisters that would belittle or hurt their younger adoring siblings, Lynn makes sure that Katie comes with her everywhere. Being Japanese-Americans living in the 1950s, their parents must face terrible jobs and long hours. Worse still, Lynn seems to be losing a lot of energy for unknown reasons. As Katie grows and watches sister slipping away she must learn how to cope with the world on her own.
