Review:
Paralyzed by a bike accident, Jonathan, now in a wheelchair, has done everything he can to continue living a normal life on the family farm. One day, as his mother is leaving, she asks him to get the horses into the barn in case of a storm. Unexpectedly, the anticipated storm develops into a tornado - against which Jonathan must pit himself; he has to save the horses. Exciting, with dramatic illustrations of the storm, the focus of this fine story is on the protagonist's competence, not his handicap.
