Shades Of Love

Cynthia Kadohata

In this YA story set in the 1950s an Asian-American family moves from Iowa to Georgia after their family business fails. Their struggles only multiply in Georgia. The parents work almost around the clock in hatcheries and over time they become shells of their former selves. The sisters, Lynn and Katie are extremely close. When the eldest, Lynn is diagnosed with Lymphoma, Katie cares for her. Accessible language, good pacing and characters the reader can empathize with. A good read.
