Allie is caught up in a tornado that threatens to destroy everything.

Allie's life has just taken a turn for the worse; not only do her parents fight all the time, but she is failing more classes than not and now she thinks she might be pregnant. Unable to face up to her parents she decides to run away. She hooks up with her old friend Razz, a professional skateboarder, and goes on the road. Razz is ranked number one but constant confrontations with the challenger Slash put Allie in some dangerous situations. With the rivalry heating up, Razz and Allie head toward home--right into the path of a fierce tornado. To survive in the horror and destruction that follow the storm, Allie has to call on an inner strength she didn't know she had.

Also available in Spanish.

"A quick and easy read with enough momentum to keep readers turning the pages - a good choice for the reluctant reader." - KLIATT

"An amazing amount of story is packed into these action-driven pages." - VOYA

"A fast-paced, exciting work...readers are kept enough on edge to see the story through to the end." - School Library Journal

"The action is vivid throughout, particularly the anguish of the aftermath of the tornado...The story should appeal to both male and female readers even though the protagonist is female." - Resource Links
