Readers who will like this: Readers who love mystery!

Rating/Response: 4. Kids who love mysteries will love this book! It is full of it. It takes place in the south so there are funky names and accents that are used so students would have to get used to it.

One question you would ask before a read aloud: Has anyone ever been or known someone who has been caught in a hurricane or witnessed one?
