In To Siberia, an unnamed girl-called Sistermine by her beloved brother Jesper-grows up in WWII Denmark, but dreams of escaping to the idyllic countryland in Siberia. The siblings’ already uninvolved parents become even more distant after a family member’s suicide. And following the German invasion of Denmark, the now teenaged brother and sister begin to grow apart as well. Jesper longs for the warm southern sun of Morocco, while Sistermine dreams of Siberia’s peaceful plains. The siblings’ divergent paths are underscored by the intense loneliness of their separation. As Sistermine hopes to be reunited with her brother, she realizes that her dreams of happiness may have passed her by.

    " I liked the story better than Horses. I don't think I would like to live in Denmark... "

    " Like other Petterson books, this one is lyrical and piercingly lovely. This is beautiful writing, transparent and intimate. A coming-of-age book, about a young girl growing up in a family troubled by alcoholism, rage and a pervasive fear of love. The heroine is redeemed by her relationship with her brother, who is full of affection, courage and a wild sense of adventure. She simply lives her life, naked to it, without resentment or rationalization, and it is austerely beautiful, colored by the details of the Scandinavian landscape. Not a page-turner, but a book to savor. "

    " Again, I can not say enough about how amazing a writer Petterson is. Re-read Out Stealing Horses just to soak up more of his prose. "

    " Hard to stay interested in this one. Don't know if it was the book or the onset of a northwest winter :) "
