Growing up, I loved to watch storms. My sister and I would sit on the porch until the lightning got too close and our mom would call us inside. There was just something about a storm's unpredictability that made them beautiful.
I recently had the chance to read The Stormchasers by Jenna Blum. The book, from The New York Times bestselling author of Those Who Saved Us, draws on Blum's own experience with storm chasing. But the book is not only about weather, it also explores the powerful bond between twins.
Karena and Charles may be twins, but they haven't seen each other in 20 years. Charles, obsessed with storms and diagnosed as bipolar, disappeared without telling his family where he was going. When Karena receives a call from a mental health facility, she starts tracking her bother and the storms he lives for.
The story follows Karena on her amazing adventures, witnessing powerful storms, catching glimpses of her brother, and falling for someone she never expected. The Stormchasers is an amazing tale of siblings, love, and overcoming the past. The vivid details provided by Blum throughout the book allow readers to imagine every aspect of the Karena's journey.
The Stormchasers goes on sale today and is available for $15.
I was provided a copy of the book for review. All opinions are my own.
