Interesting data on tornadoes.
Insight into bi-polar disorder

This is a very interesting look at the relationship between twins, bipolar disorder, and the life and experiences of stormchasers. I found it an easy read that really held my interest on many levels.

Jenna Blum's second book. Ms. Blum goes back and forth from the present to the past in her books, and this is quite an effective tool for her work. This is a very engaging story drawing parallels between bipolarism and storm chasing. The book is fast moving and there is a subtle undercurrent of ...something...that has happened in the past, but we are not sure what. The tension of what that something could be holds the reader. Easy to read, engaging story, brilliant and memorable characters.

A very good story that I really enjoyed reading. The pace was great, the characters interesting... I would recommend this to those who enjoyed the author's book 'Those Who Save Us'.

It was mildly diverting. Woman searches for her bi polar twin brother whom she hasn't seen for 18 years. Finds nice man instead.

"Say say my playmate
Come out and play with me
And bring your dollies three
Climb up my apple tree
Slide down my rain barrel
Into my cellar door
And we'll be jolly friends
