About the Author


  

Praise For…


An adaptation for teen readers of Flannery's highly regarded and influential adult title (The Weather Makers, 2006), Walker's readable and convincing rewrite follows the original organization but tightens up the text, shortening chapters and addressing the intended readers with action suggestions between each chapter.
