In Expanded Horizons
Genre: Magic Realism
A very gentle tale. In some ways, this one is like a postscript to some other, more melodramitic story. This one begins with a girl, Spark, being awarded into the custody of her older brother. In a way, Spark thinks, it's like magic the way the judge has now changed her life. She is looking forward to the Cherry Blossom festival in Japan. That, too, is magical for her.
