Real Review: “I took Geology 101 in college. The way the professor taught it was extremely confusing. Now, 25 years later, I find this book that explained earthquakes in a way to make it easy to understand, and best of all for middle schoolers, not scary. Too often, an “educational book” like this would frighten the kids half to death. This lays the facts out in such a way to make the facts come to life without making the reader fear the “what ifs”. There are also questions and activities in the back suitable for school kids. Read the book. You might learn something.”
