Thirteen-year-old Kyle thought spending a vacation on the Oregon coast with his family would be great. He'd never flown before, and he'd never seen the Pacific Ocean. But Kyle's perfect vacation becomes a nightmare while he's babysitting his sister, BeeBee. An earthquake hits the coast and starts a fire in their hotel. While fighting their way through the smoke and flame, Kyle remembers seeing a sign at the beach that said after an earthquake everyone should go uphill and inland, as far from the ocean as possible. Tsunamis, giant waves that often follow earthquakes, can ride in from the sea and engulf anyone who doesn't escape fast enough. Can Kyle and BeeBee outwit and outrun nature's fury to save themselves from tsunami terror?

"When 13-year-old Kyle goes to the Oregon shore for a family vacation, little does he realize that disaster awaits. While babysitting his little sister, BeeBee, he must contend with a bullying classmate who is also on the trip, a wild storm, a fire in their ramshackle hotel, and an unexpected tsunami that swamps the coastline. Though Terry Bregy's tone is pleasant, his voice is not convincing as that of a stressed teenager who is facing multiple calamities. Breghy sounds earnest, grandfatherly, and occasionally sanctimonious--qualities that may be attributed in part to an improbable, clichŽd plot. Despite these shortcomings, the listener does want to learn what happens to Kyle and his family. M.H.N. (c) AudioFile 2009, Portland, Maine"
