Tarshis, Lauren, (author.). Dawson, Scott, (illustrator.).


"It's 1900, and Charlie feels lucky to live in Galvestion, Texas. Sure, there are storms sometimes, [b]ut nobody worries about hurricanes. Even a famous weather expert says it's impossible for a strong hurricane to strike Galveston. Which is why few people worry on the morning of September 8, when a big storm starts to brew. But Charlie watches with growing horror as monster waves rise up from the sea, as the wind starts to scream . . . Will Charlie find a way to survive the storm of the century?" -- Adapted from cover.
