Two girls find themselves alone on a remote Scottish island—with a laboratory of evil scientists who are prepared to play havoc with the weather to gain control. They must escape from the island, and get the evidence back to Edinburgh, before the scientists become unstoppable. It is a mad race across Scotland closely pursued by these villainous scientists. When dramatic storms batter a small Scottish island and reduce a village to ruins, Ally and Kirstie think they are the sole survivors. But they meet Brad, the son of American scientists, and together uncover terrifying truth about the storms and the evil man who controls them. A great fast-paced and funny whodunnit that will keep boys, especially, highly entertained.

About the Author:

Barbara  Mitchelhill is the author of Damian Drooth Ace DetectiveRun Rabbit Run, and A Twist of Fortune.

From Booklist:

After digging out from a devastating storm that wrecks their shelter on a Scottish island, Ally, 10, and her older sister discover that the terrifying weather has been spurred along by villains, who have hatched a sinister plot to create global warming and control the world. The organization’s next target is Edinburgh. Can the girls save the city? Part survival adventure, part sf thriller, Mitchelhill’s story races along with fast, furious action as the sisters and an American boy escape everything from sucking whirlpools and tumbling rocks to killer vultures. Ally uses her technical skills to download military data about the nefarious Storm Control group, get the disc to the government (specifically to the official who is not corrupt), and save the planet. In her chatty voice, the savvy young computer whiz tells how she bickers with her sister and gets past a roadblock by traveling in a horse and cart. The combination of the ordinary detail with the dangerous technology and the imminent ecological disaster makes for an exciting read. Grades 4-8. --Hazel Rochman
