When 16 year old Allie goes on the trip of her life–storm chasing–she gets more than she ever bargained for. A supernatural experience leaves her changed forever, and when she gets home, she learns that she now bears a horrible curse. Every time a thunderstorm arrives, she is forced to turn into a tornado. Unable to control her actions and unable to hold the transformations back, she must find a way to get rid of her new affliction before she ends up killing someone–and that could end up being her parents, her neighbors, or her best friend, Tommy.
Allie must return to the plains to find those who did this to her and to find a cure. She enters a world she never knew existed, where others share her curse.
