Overview

Storm Runners (Storm Runners Series #1) by Roland Smith

The first in a middle-grade action-adventure series from Roland Smith!

 

Chase Masters and his father are "storm runners," racing across the country in pursuit of hurricanes, tornadoes, and floods. Anywhere bad weather strikes, they are not far behind. Chase is learning more on the road than he ever would just sitting in a classroom. But when the hurricane of the century hits, he will be tested in ways he never could have imagined.

This book is the start of becoming big like some of Gary Paulson's books, such as Hatchet. As soon as I picked this book off of my school's book fair, I could not put it down. I absolutly cannot wait until I get the next one. Will they surrvive? I would reccomend this book to anyone that loves action and competition like myself. I was so into it. I was reading it at night so it seemed like that I was in the storm too. I felt like I had to get somewhere safe like them. Awesome book!

The book was so interesting. I got this book from my school book fair. The moment I saw the cover I knew I wanted to read it. Then once I started reading it, I couldn't put down. The lesson on the book was realy, no matter how sacry things get you need to face your fears. Lots of people in the book were so brave in some big scarry events. Some of the events I thought to myself, could I do that? Or I thought, man that person is realy brave. What i liked most about the book was that the characters risked there life to get to safty. It was an adventure.

Gold Star Award Winner! Chase and his father travel across the country chasing storms. His father, a master carpenter, works hard to protect buildings from hurricanes and tornadoes. After the storm, he helps rebuild. The family settles in Florida, where a hurricane is fast approaching land. No one knows where it's going to hit. Chase's father has a good idea, though, and he heads to Saint Petersburg. He leaves Chase behind with friends, who have a daughter his age, so that Chase can attend school. All day the news swirls about when and where Hurricane Emily will land. As the sky darkens, Chase isn't sure he wants to get on the bus after school. He tries to stop the Principal from sending everyone home on the bus. He isn't successful. But the storm is just beginning - and it's going to be a wild ride. STORM RUNNERS is a fast-paced, addicting read. With short chapters, tons of action, and danger around every corner, I couldn't put this book down. I can't wait for the next installment in this new series!
