Awesome Level

Out of 1 to 10 I rate this book 100. It felt like I was in the tornado and it was an very Awesome book, it was also very intense. Those are some of the reasons I rate this a 100.


One problem was when the tornado hit the solution to that was nothing really. Another and solution was when Dan, Arthur, and Stacey had nowhere to live or sleep the police station let them stay there for a while.
