"A powerfully weird, original tale that combines American folk horror with a surreal coming-of-age nightmare."--The Guardian


Stephen King's The Mist meets David Lynch's Twin Peaks in this surreal, mind-bending horror-thriller.


In a small town tucked away in the midwestern corn fields, the adults whisper about Tornado Day. Our narrator, a high school sophomore, has never heard this phrase but she soon discovers its terrible meaning: a plague of sentient tornadoes is coming to destroy them.


The only thing that stands between the town and total annihilation is a teen boy known as the tornado killer. Drawn to this enigmatic boy, our narrator senses an unnatural connection between them. But the adults are hiding a secret about the origins of the tornadoes and the true nature of the tornado killer--and our narrator must escape before the primeval power that binds them all comes to claim her.


Audaciously conceived and steeped in existential dread, this genre-defying fever dream of a novel reveals the mythbound madness at the heart of American life.

Paperback, 352 pages.

Fiction, thriller, horror, coming of age.
