No one escapes fate without sacrifice, but is the price more than Carly is willing to pay?

"Every now and again, a story comes along that shakes up your world. Something that you didn't expect, or see coming. A book like this is why I read YA ..." Trisha Wolfe, Young Adult Author, YA Bound Book Blog

Abandoned by the world around her, Carly believes she is fated to a life of torment at the hands of her stepfather and is desperate for an escape. When she can bear the abuse no longer and gives in to a thunderous rage, she suddenly finds herself in an unfamiliar, yet beautiful, storm world. This limbo between dimensions appears to be her private sanctuary, but it may just be her purgatory.

In The Storm is a unique, enthralling, and heart-breaking young adult contemporary science fiction fantasy from Karen Metcalf.
