Last Year's Winner

So, today I finished listening to Kira-Kira, which won the Newberry last year. It was... ok. It wasn't bad by any means, but it didn't really grab me in any special way and it didn't add anything new to the "young person dying through lingering illness" genre, although it is told through the eyes of her sister.

As I got to the end, there were several points where I thought it could have just ended and still haunted me, but it got wrapped up nicely in the end and it won't really stick with me at all. Oh well.
