What to expect

Helicity is well aware her name is unusual—kind of like Helicity herself. The word Helicity means to spin, and for as long as she can remember, Helicity has been fascinated by the weather. The weather is Helicity’s escape from her own reality—be it school, her father’s strict discipline, or her brother’s imminent departure for college, where he’s all set to play football.

One fateful day, Helicity and her horse head out on a long ride to take a break from life at home. Even with her vast weather experience, Helicity is unprepared for the elements she faces. The choices Helicity makes before, during, and after that storm will have a lasting effect on her family and her future.
