Summary, etc.:
Eleven-year-old Dexter has always wanted to see a tornado. So when he gets the incredible opportunity to go storm chasing with the famous Dr. Norman Gage, he has to say yes! Dr. Gage is the host of Tornado Mysteries, the show that Dex and his older brother, Jeremy, watched every night until Jeremy joined the U.S. Navy SEALs and left Joplin. Dex certainly knows how deadly tornadoes can be, but this one isn't heading towards Joplin, and wouldn't it be great have a brave and exciting story of his own to tell Jeremy when he comes home? But when the tornado shifts directions, Dexter's bravery is about to get seriously tested.
