Into the fire Storm by: Deborah Hopkinson Do you want adventure, excitement and action? Well, this book is for you. This book is for any one who is eager to learn about the 1906 earthquake in San-Francisco. The information in this book is perfect for the middle school age group. The voice the author used was very into the characters for example: after reading this book I could describe the characters as if they where my best friends. It was also in chronological order to the earthquake events. You could just imagine you where there. The book is about a boy named nick he lost his parents at a young age and lived with his grandmother for a while, but she dies of an illness while nick was picking cotton in the fields. He had picked cotton all his life, and now that his family is gone he wants out. So he runs away to San-Francisco, and meets up with his new ¿family¿ a shop keep and a dog that Mr. Pat 'the shop keep' loves like his own son, and the dogs name is shake 'short for Shakespeare'. Almost a day after they had all met Mr. Pat had to go on a business trip. So, he left his beloved dog behind with nick to watch over. As soon as he left Anna 'a ¿friend¿ he met the day before' heard and told him congratulations. The next morning nick woke up to find the dog was gone, and the world was shaking and he blurted out the word EARTHQUAKE! He saw Annie and her pregnant mother and tried to get them to safety which would be Union Square. Their journey to Union Square is a hard one. He still hasn¿t found shake, and he doesn¿t even know if he will make it out of here alive. It¿s up to you to find out who lives, who dies, and who you will never see again. Take my advice this is a good read.
