- UK Edition
A middle-grade whirlwind adventure for boys and girls, from a debut author with an extraordinary voice.
The night Twister was born, a hurricane tore through her town – giving Twister her wild ways, according to Aunt Honey. Twister’s pa disappeared that night too and nobody knows why. When, twelve years later, the town’s eccentric gives Twister a letter that he says her father left for her for ‘when the time is right’, it starts Twister on a journey to find out what happened to Pa. It’s a journey that starts with a lightning storm and ends with a bang; a journey on which Twister will need every ounce of cleverness, courage and friendship she can muster.
