Book Review - The Hurricane Child

The Hurricane Child

About the Book
Caroline Murphy is a Hurricane Child.

Being born during a hurricane is unlucky, and twelve-year-old Caroline has had her share of bad luck lately. She's hated and bullied by everyone in her small school on St. Thomas of the US Virgin Islands, a spirit only she can see won't stop following her, and -- worst of all -- Caroline's mother left home one day and never came back.

But when a new student named Kalinda arrives, Caroline's luck begins to turn around. Kalinda, a solemn girl from Barbados with a special smile for everyone, becomes Caroline's first and only friend -- and the person for whom Caroline has begun to develop a crush.

Now, Caroline must find the strength to confront her feelings for Kalinda, brave the spirit stalking her through the islands, and face the reason her mother abandoned her. Together, Caroline and Kalinda must set out in a hurricane to find Caroline's missing mother -- before Caroline loses her forever.

My Take on the Book
This author does an amazing job at creating a world that is tangible for the reader. Caroline is a character that you feel compelled to know more. You feel the emotions that she shows and it is through these real emotional triggers that you as a reader come to connect with the book itself. The book is filled with vivid descriptions that make you feel like you are there. The book is deep, yet sets the reader up for an experience that they will remember for a long time to come.
