"Alyssa, 13, has been mute ever since he mother drowned and her father disappeared three years ago during a storm. ...As another hurricane approaches and danger looms, she has flashboacks....The story's thrust--like the approaching storm--is strong, and makes for absorbing reading." --Kirkus Reviews
I read this within 24 hours. There seemed to be a few holes in the storyline that I had to reread and see what I missed. During the terrible storm the adults seemed let the children be in charge too much. Very good juvenile fiction.
