Illustrated by John Clapp
In a small mountain village, a young girl named Shining is born. The villagers fear and shun her because she doesn't speak, but one day she will win the heart of her people. Newbery Honor author Julius Lester has created a powerful tale about the importance of remaining true to one's self and finding one's voice.
