Emmet Roche is an odd ball, a whippersnapper, a genius. His failed science experiments caused such ruckus he's being shipped out to the country school. Nobody there likes or understands him. When the blizzard of 1888 hits, snowing sideways, will anyone listen to his ideas about the flame color in the stove? And the headaches and dizziness? Will they take his advice before it's too late?

From the Author:

For kids who "don't like science" a story that will change their mind.
Long before STEM and STEAM the kids who already loved science, got it. They ate it up then and they still do today.
But what about the history fans? Or kids who just want a good story? They can read "Emmet's Storm," enjoy it and be infected with the excitement of scientific discovery. That is what STEM and STEAM is about. Getting kids interested in science who might otherwise not be. And that is why this book won the 2017 Best STEM Book award, one of only two novels in the country to do so.

About Emmet: There have always been quirky, "different" kids who didn't quite fit in but were very intelligent. Often they were obsessed with science. In the 1880's, Emmet Roche was such a kid, like many I have taught. Writing the book I imagined how one of my smart but atypical students would have lived and coped before the turn of the century, when all the cutting edge technology was in things we take for granted today. The "experiments" that were ground-breaking for  him are now a normal part of intermediate science classes. The very real Children's Blizzard of 1888 gave him a chance to show how useful his scientific speculations were.

Emmet's Storm is one of the six winners chosen for Children's Book Council/NSTA's Best STEM Book of 2017.

From the Back Cover:

"Some 40 years after Edison's own birth, Emmet Roche typifies all the characteristics of a young Thomas Edison himself. As Emmet evolves from the atypical boy who is only marginally tolerated in small town Iowa, to becoming the hero of the day, is truly an inspiring story every young boy or girl would love to read.
I can only imagine how many youthful minds Emmet Roche may lead down the path of scientific observation."
