Winter Sky is truly a wonderfully written book. It is about a girl named Siria.  Her mother named her after the brightest star in the winter sky. Sadly, her mother died when Siria was young. Siria’s dad is a firefighter and it is her job to keep him safe, at least that is what her mother told her before she died. When Siria hears sirens she secretly sneaks out with her best friend Douglas and chases after the firetruck through the dark streets of the city.  Siria suspects that someone is purposely setting the fires.  She and Douglas get into a terrible fight.  Siria must learn to be brave and to forgive both herself and her friend.



I think this book is both mysterious and adventurous. I like how the story is told in third person, it would be not as good if it was told from Sirias. I think that this book could be better if it described the fires in more detail. It would be exciting if she could save someone from a fire. I recommend this book to people who like a bit of adventure and a bit of mystery. Overall, I loved it!
