The Year Without A Summer : A Novel / Alene Mark.

Mark, Arlene. (Author).


No summer in Albany, New York? Deep snow in June? Blame Tombora, the 1815 volcanic eruption. Present-day eighth grader Jamie would be psyched for such an event; he could snowboard in summer! But Clara, a recently arrived Puerto Rican hurricane survivor, sees things way differently. After these two disrupt class completley with their clash of opinions, they are challanged to prove their beliefs about natural disasters ... or suffer concequences. But as Jamie and Clara's battle drags on, home stresses and current climate disasters "wake" both teens to action, and gradually empathy replaces cultural differences - and egos.
