Book Review - Disaster Strikes: Earthquake Shock
About the Book
When disaster strikes, the only thing you can count on is yourself!
It had seemed like the perfect California day. But as Joey Flores walked home from the skate park with his friends, the ground began to tremble, and Joey knew they were headed for trouble....
The earthquake that followed devastated their neighborhood, collapsing a nearby overpass with Joey and Fiona on one side and Kevin and Dylan on the other. Now Joey and his friends must rescue each other, endure the aftershocks, and find a new way home as the earth cracks beneath their feet.
My Take on the Book
This chapter book if full of excitement as Joey Flores walked home from school and there is an earthquake. His neighborhood is devastated and many homes have collapsed . He is worried about his family and friends and in this book he helps to rescue his friends who are trapped. It is a good story about a young man who may not feel he is important but he shows his strong character as he helps those around him. He thinks of others as he even puts himself in danger. I think your child who enjoys reading chapter books that are adventures will enjoy this book. To me it shows the integrity of this young man who proves himself in the face of a very difficult situation.
