Hurricane is the gripping story of a natural disaster and the thirteen year-old Kingston boy who lives to tell the tale.
Holed up in their home, Joe Brown, his sister Mary and their parents wait for the eye of the hurricane to pass over them. Outside, a terrifying wind turns trees to splinters, darkness swallows the land and torrential rains lash the roof.
Inside it is warm, dry, a home. A family huddled together for survival. But the storm hasn t passed yet, and all Joe and his family can do is worry, and wait, and hope.
