I listened to the audiobook. The story is about a father (John) and son (Chase) who travel to areas about to be hit by natural disasters (storms). The father offers to help secure buildings in advance of the storm for free. After the storm leaves, grateful storm victims come to him as paying customers to repair their storm damaged homes. Chase is well prepared to deal with problems and a big one comes his way in the form of Hurricane Emily. Having just arrived in Florida to meet the storm, Chase meets Nicole, her family of little people, and gets introduced to their farm of circus animals. Chase, Nicole, and a girl that they meet on the school bus have to make it to safety by swimming through alligator infested waters, forcing their way through bracing winds, avoiding flying debris, and keeping their eyes out for wild animals. This book ends on a true cliff-hanger. This story will not appeal to those who wish to read a self-contained story. It should appeal to those who like a lot of adventure with their action. A good recommendation for boy reluctant readers.

Lorie I agree about your comment about not appealing to those readers of self-contained books. I don't mind sequels, but I felt this ending a little too abrupt!
