Review: “Firestorm” by David Klass | Mary Pelton’s Blog

This cover would appeal to boys and any girls looking for an action adventure story. Klass portrays Jack as a kid with a lot of depth. Beside all those flaws I like how the author focuses on issues of real life such as describing the problems on Earth and the ocean life being destroyed.
