Thirteen-year-old Kyle thought spending a vacation on the Oregon coast with his family would be great. He’d never flown before, and he’d never seen the Pacific Ocean. But Kyle’s perfect vacation becomes a nightmare while he’s babysitting his sister, BeeBee. An earthquake hits the coast and starts a fire in their hotel. While fighting their way through the smoke and flame, Kyle remembers seeing a sign at the beach that said after an earthquake everyone should go uphill and inland, as far from the ocean as possible. Tsunamis, giant waves that often follow earthquakes, can ride in from the sea and engulf anyone who doesn’t escape fast enough. Can Kyle and BeeBee outwit and outrun nature’s fury to save themselves from tsunami terror?

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“The best part of the book is the sub-plot of eight-year-old BeeBee’s obsession with the financial market.” Children’s Literature
“A satisfying read for victims of bullying.” School Library Journal
“The short length, survival theme, engaging siblings, and a subplot involving a bully combine for a satisfying tale. The narrative pace, moving briskly enough to engage the whole family, easily allows younger listeners to follow the action.” Booklist, audio review
