"Storm Runners" is a suspense-filled, action-packed, keep you on the edge of your seat kind of book. The beginning of the book is kind of slow but after you get into it you will find yourself devouring each page of this novel. During this book author Roland Smith leaves you clutching the book trying to make yourself read even faster just to know what is going to happen.
"Storm Runners" takes place during two days in the life of Chase Masters, the son of a storm chaser. Because of his dad's profession Chase moves a lot but unlike most people instead of moving away from the storm Chase and his dad are always moving towards it. Chase has been through almost every natural disaster you can think of. In this book they are following a hurricane.
Chase is currently living with a family that he just met. They live on a ranch that is home to many different circus animals some retired and some just waiting for the circus season to start again. Nicole, a permanent resident of the ranch, lives there with her grandma and father. When Chase meets Nicole he starts to think this move was not really that bad, and it just gets better when he is told he will be going to school with her. The next day at school Chase was thinking this has been a good day, obviously he did not know that by the end of that night he would have met a new friend and decided that he did not want his dad to be a storm chaser anymore.
When Chase finds himself separated from his dad and caught inside the storm he finds himself forced to use all his training in survival skills just to stay alive. He begins questioning if he will ever see his father again.
This is a short book but that does not mean it is short on suspense and action. I would most definitely recommend this book for children 4th-8th grade.
