9781511661706: The Sleeping Giant: A Novel

10-year-old psychic twins Danny & Becca Brock must somehow save their family from impending doom...

Mount Rainier had stood like a towering dormant sentinel, watching over the Puget Sound area for millennia. Then, on a clear September morning, something deep inside the heart of the sleeping volcano shifted. For the Brock family, and the millions of residents who lived in the mountain's shadow, life was about to change forever, and the unimaginable was about to occur... the giant was waking up.

This book is a work of fiction, but it takes place in very real locations. More than 3.5 million people live in the metropolitan area along the eastern edge of Puget Sound, in Washington state. They live work and play in the shadow of one of the largest and most dangerous dormant volcanoes in the United States. Mount Rainier, at 14,400 feet above sea level, is the tallest mountain in the state. It is blanketed by no fewer than 26 glaciers, and holds more snow and ice on its slopes than all the other volcanoes in the Cascade Mountain range combined. The distinct shape and majestic beauty of the mountain are visible from almost every point in this heavily populated area. When this sleeping giant erupts, (scientists tell us that it WILL erupt, eventually) it will be one of the largest natural disasters in recorded U.S. history.

Review:

FOUR STARS "I absolutely love the setting ... [The story] is a fictionalized tale about a pending natural disaster which scientists agree will take place (it is just a matter of when). The author alternates personal stories and scientific information ... a very smart read." - Janelle Fila for Readers' Favorite
