This “High School Musical” for the younger set by Dan Gutman is a page turner from the tornado that destroys the school library (and a lot of the rest of the Kansas town) through the trials, tribulations, and auditions for the benefit talent show, to the tornado that nearly whisks away the talent show itself and the rest of the town in the concluding pages. Between the storms are some great-hearted, believable, and talented youngsters, as well as some not so talented but ever so sympathetic. Adventurous humor amid natural disaster – a timely theme and a great read.
