When disaster strikes, the only thing you can count on is yourself!

It had seemed like the perfect California day. But as Joey Flores walked home from the skate park with his friends, the ground began to tremble, and Joey knew they were headed for trouble . . .

The earthquake that followed devastated their neighbourhood, collapsing a nearby overpass with Joey and Fiona on one side and Kevin and Dylan on the other. Now Joey and his friends must rescue each other, endure the aftershocks, and find a new way home as the earth cracks beneath their feet.

Raves & reviews:

Praise for Disaster Strikes #1: Earthquake Shock:

"Full of action and realistic friend dynamics...this holds strong appeal for both girls and boys and features a diverse cast of characters. A rare find in transitional chapter books, this one also works for older, struggling readers thanks to its real-life survival element and 10-year-old protagonist."Booklist
