Tarshis is the New York Times-bestselling author of the I Survived series—fast-paced books for kids that focus on real-life disasters, as told from the perspective of a boy or girl who lived to tell the tale. Her latest book in the series, Tornado Terror, explores two historic tornado strikes: the Tri-State Tornado of 1925—the deadliest tornado strike in American history, tearing through three states and killing 700 people—and the Joplin Tornado of 2011, a mile-wide monster that destroyed the heart of a vibrant town. The book includes true stories of these two events plus facts and profiles of tornado scientists and storm chasers.
