Description

Born and raised in the Midwest, Jersey Cameron knows all about tornadoes-or so she thinks. When her town is devastated by a twister, Jersey survives but loses her mother, her young sister, and her home. As she struggles to overcome her grief, she's sent to live with her only surviving relatives: first her biological father, then her estranged grandparents.In an unfamiliar place, Jersey faces a reality she's never considered before-one in which her mother wasn't perfect and neither were her grandparents, but they all loved her just the same. Together, they create a new definition of family. And that's something no tornado can touch.

Professional reviews

"Lauren Fortgang narrates Jennifer BrownÕs heartrending novel. ItÕs impossible not to suffer along with 16-year-old Jersey Cameron as she survives a devastating tornadoÑonly to experience further personal loss. The immediacy of FortgangÕs narration tears down the wall separating listener and story just as powerfully as the storm rips apart JerseyÕs Missouri community. Each time Brown throws another sucker punch at the already down-and-out Jersey, Fortgang delivers the knife pain of regret and the dull ache of despair with vicious accuracy. Listeners will wonder how much more Jersey can endure just as Brown and Fortgang allow her a small measure of rest and healing. This captivating recording will engender deep feeling in listeners.
