If you love suspenseful and adventurous books in the genre of realistic fiction, then this is the book for you. The book Earthquake Terror by Peg Kehret is so exiting you
won’t be able to put it down, I know I couldn’t.
In the beginning, the Palmers, a family of four, are camping on Magpie Island when Mrs. Palmer, the mom, was swimming and breaks her ankle and the kids, Jonathan and Abby, have to stay alone on the island while Mr. And Mrs. Palmer rush to the nearest hospital. Gasp!
Next, a terrible, destructive earthquake hits Magpie Island and Jonathan, the son, has to protect his younger sister Abby, and himself. Nature is in control. Is surviving a possibility? You will have to read to find out.
In conclusion, this is a great book for people who love suspenseful and exiting realistic fiction books and are in 5th to 8th grade. It’s so good that I would rate this book 5 out of 5 stars!

Review: Earthquake Terror

User Review  - Amanda - Goodreads

This is an interesting survival story to pass on to kids who love the I Survive series, Stranded, or Wild River. It's not as heart thumping as the title word "Terror" would suggest, but there are definitely moments when you wonder just how they are going to get out of the mess they are in. Read full review
