Eruption by Roland Smith - ADVISABLE

Smith, Roland Storm Runners: Eruption, 156 pgs. Scholastic Press, 2012. Language - PG (1 swear, 0 "f"), Sexual Content - G; Violence PG; 

Chase and friends are heading up a mountain right after surviving a bad earthquake to confirm that family is still alive. Unfortunately, the powerful earthquake has reminded the volcano at the top of the mountain that it isn't dormant. Now landslides and ash are wearing on everyone's hope and strength as they foreshadow more hardships to come farther up the mountain. Can Chase make it through these trails as well as they fared during the hurricane? 

Following Chase and his friends fight to get to their loved ones makes for an intense and fast-paced story as suspense and worry plague the mind of both the characters and readers. Even without reading the preceding books, it is easy to get into the adventure of this quick read.
