The powerful story of a boy's fear and courage in the face of a force of nature too huge to even imagine.
Based on Hurricane Mitch's devastation of Honduras in 1998, Terry Trueman's acclaimed Hurricane is a gripping, realistic story told from the perspective of a hurricane survivor.
After hours of cowering in the dark with no lights, no warmth, and the terrible noises of the rain and wind pounding on the walls, Jose walks out his front door and steps into a nightmare. Everything is gone. Everything except for the desperate courage of those who survived that terrifying night.
But his nightmare has only begun as he and the few who are left in his small village dig for survivors, search for food and water, and try to start pulling their lives back together.
