The next book in the New York Times best-selling I Survived series will place listeners right in the middle of the deadly Joplin Tornado of 2011.
A catastrophic tornado struck Joplin, Missouri, in 2011. It was part of a larger tornado outbreak in the spring of that year, and reached a maximum width of nearly one mile during its path through the southern part of the city, killing 158 people, and injuring over 1,000. It caused damages amounting to $2.8 billion, making it the costliest single tornado in US history. Lauren will bring her signature intensity to this distinctly American natural disaster, placing a young boy in the middle of one of the deadliest tornadoes to strike the United States since 1947.

The date was Sunday, May 22nd, 2011. Dexter James, 11, was in an SUV. Why? The writing is very descriptive:
"..pain was like being stung by thousands of scorpions."
"..wind whipped round him like invisible tentacles."
Is there any escape? Before we find out, the reader is taken back in time to the day before. Dexter is thinking of his brother when he just misses a near collision with a storm chaser. Dr. Gage is in town to chase and document the storm system that is forming out west of Missouri. He talks back to the Super Outbreak of 1974.
Although this book was interesting and our 8 year old loves it, it is necessary to remember that this particular story is FICTION! Is it well written? For the most part, yes but Chapter 15 is very disjointed. It talks about searching through debris and then getting out of bed. This is followed by someone back home and then in the hospital. The author does share at the end the reason for writing the book, along with the actual timeline of the storm, as well as answering questions on tornadoes and how to stay safe if found in that situation. We were actually on the road at the time the tornado hit, returning from Branson. The rain was torrential.
I downloaded this book for my Kindle. I was not required to write a review but chose to do so. Thanks, Liz
I enjoyed the book because I like it how the Main character narrates the whole disaster and his way of Explaining the tornado.
After I read this book I felt sad for the city of Joplin And what people went through and how every town has to go through after a tornado.
Appropriate content for 2nd graders, too if their reading level is there. We have had a lot of luck with the "I Survived" chapter books during the 3rd grade year. It's a solid go-to series to knock out those book reports.

It was good fun reading it. Dr Gage would be a nice friend in real life.
Obviamente este tipo de libros atrae porque las fuerzas de la naturaleza aunque mortales, son subyugantes e hipnotiza con su poder.
Dexter James, el personaje principal es un chico de 11 años que se encuentra invitado por el doctor Gage, un cazador de Tornados, a dar una vuelta en su camioneta high tech con la que sigue el rastro de estos monstruos. Lo que no esperan es que ahora el monstruo vaya tras ellos.
I want everyone to read this series. Thank you! Lauren Tarshis, you’re one of my favourite authors.
