Synopsis:

Sixteen-year-old Allie isn’t like other girls. Instead of spending her summer break sitting around on the beach, she takes the epic vacation of a lifetime.

Tornado chasing. And she’s not disappointed. Just a few miles from the town of Evansburg, Nebraska, Allie meets her dream of seeing a tornado. In person. She can’t wait to tell her friends back home. Never mind that her parents are going to kill her.

But her dream soon turns into a nightmare, and a strange event leaves her shocked. Confused. When she returns home to Wisconsin, something’s...different. Allie now bears a curse so awful, it could destroy everyone and everything she’s ever known.

With her best friend, Tommy, Allie must return to the plains to find a way to reverse it. She enters a world that she had never imagined, where she becomes a pawn in a fight to save the people of Evansburg from her fate...or to destroy them.

Excerpt

The twister has turned again. It's coming right up behind us. Rolling earth eats the entire highway. There's tornado taking up the whole view of the back window. Dust rips to the sides. The bottom of its funnel spins with fury, big enough to swallow a house whole. Its roar screams against the outside of the vehicle, shaking the seat, pushing the whole van to the side.
It's no longer beautiful.
"Ohmigod," I say, sucking in a breath. "Um...Kyle? Um...”
"I know!" he snaps. His knuckles turn white on the steering wheel. The van lurches again but he maintains control.
"Allie, get down!" Uncle Cassius pulls me towards him. The seat belt cuts into my shoulder.
What good is it going to do? If the tornado lifts the car--
I'm going to die.
I begged to go on this trip and now Uncle Cassius is going to die too.
The windows shatter with a deafening boom and the wind screams in my ears. AllieAllieAllieAllie...
I can't breathe.
We're floating.
Uncle Cassius shouts something. Kyle yells. If I'm screaming, I can't tell. The storm's sucking it right out of me. Windy hands seize my arms, my legs.
They pull.
My safety belt snaps open, whipping against my leg. I scream with the sting. The seat disappears under me and the van door rips open.
I'm flying.
The tornado's ripping me right out of the van.
The world turns to a white and brown roar. The van's gone. I have no time to cry out to Uncle Cassius before the world snaps to black and silence swallows me.
