Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“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
