Another Kind of Hurricane
Tamara Ellis Smith

We absolutely love when a debut author's first review comes in and it's starred!! Such is the case for Tamara Ellis Smith's ANOTHER KIND OF HURRICANE. Kirkus praises the "elegant prose and emotional authenticity." They say the middle-grade book "will make this title sing not only for those who have experienced tragedies, but for everyone who knows the magic that only true friendship can foster." Beautiful! Make sure you watch for ANOTHER KIND OF HURRICANE in July. Congratulations, Tamara! We couldn't be prouder of you and your fabulous book!
