Sirens! A scary sound, especially to Siria, whose brave pop is a firefighter. Siria loves everyone at Pop's city firehouse. She also loves to study the stars. Her mother named her after the brightest start in the winter sky.   
   When Siria hears sirens, she sneaks out to chase the trucks, to bring Pop and the other firefighters luck. She'd be in big trouble if she ever got caught. Good thing her best friend, Douglas, is always by her side.
   As Christmas approaches, Siria suspects that someone in the neighborhood is setting fires. She has to find out who's doing it. When clues point to a surprising suspect, she realizes that solving this mystery will take all kinds of courage.
   Patricia Reilly Giff, the author of many beloved and award-winning books, is at her best in this action-packed story. In Winter Sky, friends, family, and a very special dog help Siria see how brave she really is.

Quotes & Awards

  • “In spare prose, Giff subtly conveys the worries of eleven-year-old Siria…Siria’s close-knit community evokes a comforting atmosphere of warmth and mutual support even in the midst of danger.”

    Publishers Weekly

  • “At night, Siria searches for fire and sirens in hopes of catching her firefighter father at work. But when she discovers a series of fires that look like arson, she decides to find the perpetrator in an effort to protect her father. Sitrick provides a strong and sincere voice that is perfect for Siria, while also capturing the uncertainty and ambiguity that comes with being a young adult often left to her own devices…Campbell also turns in a fine performance: her tone is lofty but hints at deeper emotions, which works well for Giff’s novel.”

    Publishers Weekly, audio review

  • “A powerful tale of friendship, family, and discovery.”

    School Library Journal

  • “Tender and satisfying.”

    Kirkus Reviews
