The Storm Makers

By Jennifer E. Smith

  • E-Book
  • £P.O.R.

A delightful adventure filled with friendship and mystery in the tradition of Lauren St John and Eva Ibbotson

From the author of THE STATISTICAL PROBABILITY OF LOVE comes Jennifer E Smith's THE STORM MAKERS - an adventure novel filled with friendship and mystery for any reader of Eva Ibbotson.
When twins Ruby and Simon's parents move the family from their cozy home in Chicago to a ramshackle farm in the middle of nowhere the only thing on Ruby's mind is: when can we move back home?

With miles of empty fields surrounding them, Ruby and Simon are growing apart, and Ruby doesn't know how to stop it. That is, until strange occurrences begin happening on the farm - sudden gusts of wind, rain storms, and even tornado warnings - that seem eerily timed to Simon's emotions. When a stranger shows up and tells the twins that Simon is a Storm Maker - part of a clandestine group of people entrusted with controlling and taming the weather - and that he is in great danger, Simon and Ruby discover a world of adventure lurking behind the backdrop of peaceful fields and farms. Soon Ruby and Simon are racing against the clock as they try to master Simon's powers in time to stop a rogue Storm Maker's dangerous and potentially deadly plans.
