Dear Cynthia Kadohata,
Kira-Kira made me think about love for my sister like I have never thought before. Your book Kira-Kira reminds me of how my little sister and I get into fights so much and how I feel like I don’t love my sister. But I really do love her so much. I’m happy to help my sister when she gets sick. Your book made me think of how bad my little sister’s and my realationship is, and how it’s like we love each other one day and not the next. It’s kind of like really bad waves in Hawaii.
Your book also reminds me of when my sister and I were at the store my sisters hair was crooked. People were staring, so I’d fix it for her or tell her that it was crooked. Your book made my heart and my brain think about how we have treated each other and then how we should. I wonder if I should yell at her or just calmly explain what she did wrong. Your book inspired me to say I’m sorry to my little sister and tell her how much I love her, even if she does get into my stuff.
It made me think of what I did to my older brother when I was my sisters age. I remember when I stepped on one of his games for his play station and how it made him cry. I cried when my sister ripped one of my pictures. Your book made me realize that my siblings and I could use some more patients with each other. It also made me realize that when I yell at my sister it doesn’t make her or me feel any better.
