He's been pulled from school for good and is kept prisoner in the family basement with his dog when a wicked storm hits his tiny hometown of Niobrara. Already adept at enduring situations most 13-year-olds wouldn't be able to comprehend, Jason must survive the onslaught of floodwaters and devastation that has destroyed his hometown. To do so, he'll rely on three unexpected friends who will encourage him along the way.
