What would you do if you got to meet your favorite television star? What if that same television star asked you to go on a ride with him chase a storm? Sounds cool, right? That is sure what Dex thought. His older brother, who is also his best friend, is away on a secret training mission for the Navy SEAL’s. Dex misses him so much so when this opportunity to go storm chasing with the famous television star, Dr. Gage, Dex jumps at the chance. Little does Dex know that soon he is going to have to be just as brave as his big brother. Lauren Tarshis weaves fiction and nonfiction into a story that had me holding my breath to see how it would end. I gave this book 5 stars because she does such a fantastic job giving disastrous details in a way that every kid can read and not be scared. If you liked this book, Tarshis has 11 more fantastic books, and more to come.
