Night of the Twisters (REV Harper Trophy)
Night of the Twisters (REV Harper Trophy) | Ivy Ruckman
4 posts | 4 read
When a tornado watch is issued one Tuesday evening in June, twelve-year-old Dan Hatch and his best friend, Arthur, don't think much of it. After all, tornado warnings are a way of life during the summer in Grand Island, Nebraska. But soon enough, the wind begins to howl, and the lights and telephone stop working. Then the emergency siren starts to wail. Dan, his baby brother, and Arthur have only seconds to get to the basement before the monstrous twister is on top of them. Little do they know that even if they do survive the storm, their ordeal will have only just begun. . . .

Twisters is based on a 1980 disaster in which a series of tornadoes devastated Grand Island, Nebraska. Quick read, well done 🌪️

Luckily, we survived the tornadoes that hit Richmond, although it was a scary couple of hours. Hope everyone is safe wherever you may be!

Looking out the back door of my office downtown bc we're under a tornado watch. Does this mean we can shut down and read?

I loved this book as a kid. Sad to say my adopted hometown was hit by a tornado on Tuesday. I knew it was bad when the sirens went off a 3rd time and every single first responder in Ottawa set off their sirens as well. No damage in my neighborhood but so many lost their homes...
