Molly, Bianca, and Lennie consider themselves the best of friends. They do everything together. As the condition of senioritis hits them hard with mixed emotions, the threesome find themselves involved with the reckless, end of the year activity of flirting with Mother Nature. An unexpected tornado places them in danger of losing their lives when they are rescued by handsome Raley Hale. Because Bianca feels responsible for Raley’s near death, she is determined to make his heart hers. Selfless Molly sacrifices her own heart when in his company, and even already-spoken-for Lennie recognizes the pull of his attraction. While struggling with the pressures of graduation and the upcoming prom, the three friends face the ultimate tragedy of a broken friendship…all over a boy. Even their shared faith in God cannot save the bond that should never be broken. Or can it?

Storm Season by Anna Marie Kittrell is a wonderfully written story of the importance of friendship and the power of following the Good Word of faith. As quoted in the book of Isaiah (46:10): “I make known the end from the beginning, from ancient times, what is still to come.” The fear of the unknown produces poor decision making for the main characters and results in the all too common dilemma of choosing the excitement of something new over the comfort of reality; only to be fooled by a stranger’s whim. This is a classic tale of good versus evil, but told in a way that young readers can relate. Kudos to the author for addressing such a common theme relating to young girls and for including a much needed religious undertone.
