With her latest novel, Siiri Enoranta shows she is among the best modern writers in Finland. – – the book is a masterpiece broader than a novel for young adults.

Stina Alapirtti, Aamulehti newspaper


“Enoranta’s writing is beautiful, playful, light and wise. Enoranta is not only one of the finest voices in Finnish youth literature but also an exceptionally interesting author on an international scale.”

Arla Kanerva, Helsingin sanomat newspaper


From the beginning to the final sentence, the book maintains a controlled elegance like a piece of classical music.”

Siiri Enoranta’s creativity seems to know no boundaries. Again and again she surprises her readers by constructing a brand new setting and utilising the hybridian vast field of fantasy literature for her own original purposes.”

Summer storm, WSOY 2020

All spring Andrew has had his eye on Josh Roy, the leader of the elite school kids gang, ’The Soot Wings’. By a courious chance, Andrew gets an opportunity to spend the summer in the luxurious manor house of the Roy family, and gets a glimpse of a world he doesn’t belong in.

Josh’s sister, spoiled Penelope, has witnessed a murder that scandalized the whole city, and everyone at the manor seems to tiptoe around her. But which ones of Penelope’s thruths turn out to be lies?

The last summer of Andrew’s childhood in Summersutton is a game of innocence and corruption, full of riddles drenched in sparkle and sugar, to be revealed one after the other. Summer Storm is an ugly secret twisting around itself in a shiny shell.

Summer Storm was nominated for the Finlandia Prize for the Best C&YA Title 2020 and  for the Nordic Council Children and Young People’s Literature Prize 2021.
