Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

During the heart-stopping events of the 2011 earthquake and tsunami in Japan, one boy struggles to make it out alive. The I SURVIVED series continues with a terrifying recent international disaster.

Eleven-year-old Japanese-American Owen has been in Japan for his sixth grade year. By March he finally feels like he's getting the hang of the new culture, making friends at school and feeling at home with the "weird" food. But early one morning, everything changes — and Owen suddenly finds himself just trying to survive one of history's most devastating disasters.

Synopsis:

The disaster felt around the world . . .

Visiting his dad's hometown in Japan four months after his father's death would be hard enough for Ben. But one morning the pain turns to fear: first, a massive earthquake rocks the quiet coastal village, nearly toppling his uncle's house. Then the ocean waters rise and Ben and his family are swept away-and pulled apart-by a terrible tsunami.

Now Ben is alone, stranded in a strange country a million miles from home. Can he fight hard enough to survive one of the most epic disasters of all time?
