I liked that the storm was definitely a main focus in Hurricane Kiss but not the main focus; this book isn't just about a hurricane -- it's about much more than that. This is River and Jillian's story, not Danielle's. Both River and Jillian have been through their own personal tragedies; and as they're forced into close quarters inside the school, will they find a way to survive not only the storm outside but the ones inside themselves?
I really enjoyed Hurricane Kiss; it was a fast read, and the writing and characters were captivating. And being the huge weather/meteorology enthusiast I am, I also loved the countdown to the hurricane's landfall. I recommend it for readers of contemporary and Teen/YA fiction.
I received a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.
