Description-

  • Helicity is well aware her name is unusual-kind of like Helicity herself. The word Helicity means to spin, and for as long as she can remember, Helicity has been fascinated by the weather. The weather is Helicity's escape from her own reality-be it school, her father's strict discipline, or her brother's imminent departure for college, where he's all set to play football.

    One fateful day, Helicity and her horse head out on a long ride to take a break from life at home. Even with her vast weather experience, Helicity is unprepared for the elements she faces. The choices Helicity makes before, during, and after that storm will have a lasting effect on her family and her future.

About the Author-

  • Ginger Zee is Good Morning America's chief meteorologist, reporting on the nation's weather throughout the morning broadcast. Since joining ABC News, Zee has covered almost every major weather event and dozens of historic storms. She broadcasted from the devastated Jersey Shore during Hurricane Sandy, the Colorado floods and wildfires, and covered the wreckage from tornados in Moore and El Reno, Oklahoma. Zee's love of adventure does not stop at studying the atmosphere in the center of the storm. She para-hawked in Nepal, para-glided in the Himalayas and the Andes, dove with sharks in the Bahamas, rappelled twenty-seven stories down the exterior facade of the Wit Hotel in Chicago, and has gone ice-boat racing and surfing. She lives in New York City with her husband and son.

  • Publisher's Weekly

    February 5, 2018
    Thirteen-year-old Helicity Dunlap, named after a physics term relating to a particle’s spin, loves storms, science, and math. After she isn’t placed in honors classes for the coming school year, she goes for a horseback ride and is far from home when a tornado hits. Helicity’s western Michigan town is destroyed, and her football-star older brother is injured while searching for her. In the aftermath, Helicity meets a meteorologist/storm chaser named Lana who gets her a handsome tutor named Sam, so that Helicity can prove to her parents that she belongs in the honors classes. It takes her father some time to come around, but Helicity is eventually allowed to go on a storm-chasing trip with Lana and Sam. But tragedy strikes there, too, and a cliffhanger sets up a sequel. Meteorologist Zee deftly balances the science of storms, their fascination to storm chasers, and Helicity’s angst and family problems. Readers should easily relate to Helicity’s longing to follow her passion: “Wind, moisture, pressure, temperature—there was so much about the weather that she didn’t know, and so much she wanted to understand.” Ages 8–12.
