Praise for Runaway Storm:

A rite of passage story that starts out as a rebellious solo kayaking adventure but turns perilous as 15-year-old Nate faces fellow runaways, a shipwreck and smugglers. An exciting survival tale that leaves you wanting more.
—Mary-Pat Gonzalez, M.L.S., Senior Librarian—Children’s, Huntington Beach Central Park Library

This is one book I have to be totally honest when I say, I loved it. Although it is meant for a teenage age group it held my attention and it was totally entertaining from first page to last. So much so, that I will be purchasing several copies of it as gifts as well as donating a copy to our local middle school. As for my copy? That will go on a shelf I have that holds books that have touched me in some special way. And this one did just that. Check for yourself and see if it speaks to you or the teen in your life. I would bet it will and it will find a place on your permanent bookshelf as well.—Susan Pattrone—Reviewthebook.com
