Jonathanís family enjoyed their
frequent camping trips. Although they usually went during off peak
periods when there are only a few people around; this camping trip was
different. The camp ground was completed deserted except for his family.
Jonathan had a bad feeling about this trip, and his premonition was going
to come true. His familyís camping trip would become a nightmare.
The problems started when Jonathanís mother broke her ankle. So that his
parents could get to the hospital as quickly as possible, Jonathan volunteered
to stay behind with his younger sister, Abby, who is dependent upon a walker.
While Jonathan is helping Abby back to the camper, a major earthquake hits!
The two children are able to survive the initial quake by hiding underneath
a fallen tree, but Abbyís walker gets destroyed. Jonathan is forced
to help his sister crawl back to the camper. However they discover
the camper was smashed during the earthquake, leaving the children with
no food, water, or shelter. To make matters worse, the islandís only
bridge was also destroyed leaving the children completely stranded!
Abby is panicked, hungry and tired, so Jonathan calms her down before leaving
to find some food and shelter. As Jonathan is searching, he discovers
the islandís lake seems to be getting closer and closer to their campsite.
Jonathan realizes he is going to need all of his survival skills if he
and his sister are going to survive.
Earthquake Terror will keep you at the edge of your seat as Jonathan and
Abbyís problems seem to increase with each turn of the page. You will be
quickly caught up in Jonathan and Abbyís fight for their lives.
