Book description[]

"While Amy's mum is overseas with a research team of climate change scientists and Dad is busy with work, Amy visits Gran at Marysville, helping in the garden and cleaning out her gutters.
It is, after all, bushfire season.
There's also fun to be had, and new friends to make. As summer heats up, Dad volunteers as a firefighter, helping to control the bushfires that have started burning throughout Victoria. But it is early February 2009, and the Black Saturday bushfire is about to encircle Amy and her family, and teach her first-hand about tragedy...and survival.
