Publisher's Summary

Growing up in a remote part of Alaska, Ivan and September Crane know that autumn is an unpredictable season - days of clear blue skies can give way to fierce, sudden storms in a blink. They know the trouble signs: changes in the wind, the temperature, or even the color of the dawn. But somehow, this time, left alone when their fisherman father is delayed at sea, even their keen sense of their surroundings and the lessons they've been taught fail them. So does their common sense. Though their dad warned them not to hook up their video game to the short-wave radio batteries and ordered them to stay off moody Bag Bay in their skiff, they wind up doing both. With their radio - their only link to the outside world and the town across Bag Bay - fried and useless, they've got to sneak into town to have it repaired.Soon brother and sister are caught up in a whirlpool of complications from which they can't escape. And unbeknownst to them, heading viciously and mercilessly their way is something they fear more than anything else on Bag Bay: a williwaw, a violent and unbending storm, the kind that took their mother's life years before.
