A very quick read filled with mystery and family.

While remembering her dead mother by reading her star book. But then the fires start. With her father as a firemen Siria is worried she'll lose him too.
With an arsonist on the lose its up to Siria to find out who it is. Is it somebody she trusts and loves? What will happen to her "pretend" family if it is.
Full of meaning and love, Winter Sky, is a wonderful book for the juvenile age (middle schoolers). We see friendship, mystery, happiness and loss through Siria's world. A realistic story easily recommended.
