The Spring Tone by Kazumi Yumoto

Tomomi Kiriki feels herself turning into a monster. Her body is changing, and so is her heart. Since the death of her grandmother, this spring threatens to take away the closeness her family once felt, and brings haunting dreams into Tomomi's home.

The house is falling apart. Grandpa keeps old, useless junk around. Tomorm gets headaches that keep her from enjoying the school break until her brilliant little brother, Tetsu, shares with Tomorm his secret life and his terrible plan of revenge for their neighbor. This spring the real and the imaginary have never seemed so close, and Tomorm must struggle to tell the difference.
