  About The Book

What if you had the power to control the weather?

What starts as an ordinary summer turns exciting and perilous for twins Ruby and Simon when strange occurrences begin happening on their farm -- sudden gusts of wind, rainstorms, and even tornado warnings -- that seem eerily timed to Simon's emotions.

Then a stranger arrives 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. Soon Simon and Ruby must race against the clock as they try to master Simon's powers in time to stop a rogue Storm Maker's treacherous and potentially deadly plans.

In this thrilling new adventure, loyalties can shift as quickly as the wind . . . and the ordinary can turn extraordinary in the blink of an eye.




  Praise

"This appealing and elegantly written adventure tacks well to the lee of weather-related politics, relying instead for narrative power on vivid scenes, engaging characters and satisfying twists both of plot-and of wind." The Wall Street Journal

"Smith expertly conjures the dusty feel of a Midwest where hope itself is baking away...this is miles away from most magical fare, and is therefore a real breath of fresh air." Booklist
