    Book Description:
    In a small mountain village, a young girl named Shining is born. As she grows, Shining runs, plays, and smiles like other children, but she does so silently. The villagers fear and shun her, but Shining remains silent and waits for the right moment, and for the right sound, to come—a sound so true, it will win the hearts of her people . . . and win Shining her rightful place as their leader.
    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. John Clapp’s luminous paintings add a breathtaking dimension to Shining, a character as distinct and enchanting as the world she inhabits.
    Notes by the author and the illustrator supplement the text.
