Jack VS. The Tornado By Amanda Cleary Eastep GIVEAWAY!


Adventures, friendships, and faith-testers . . . all under the watchful eye of a great big God.

The Tree Street Kids live on Cherry, Oak, Maple, and Pine, but their 1990s suburban neighborhood is more than just quiet, tree-lined streets. Jack, Ellison, Roger, and Ruthie face challenges and find adventures in every creek and cul-de-sac—as well as God’s great love in one small neighborhood.

In the first book of the Tree Street Kids series, 10-year-old Jack is shocked to discover his parents are moving from their rural homestead to the boring suburbs of Chicago. Full of energy and determination, Jack devises a plan to get himself back to his beloved farmhouse forever. Only three things stand in his way: a neighbor in need, a shocking discovery, and tornado season. Will Jack find a solution? Or is God up to something bigger than Jack can possibly imagine?

Amanda Cleary Eastep is not related to Beverly Cleary but wishes she were. She is, however, a children’s writer, and the Tree Street Kids is her debut series. Amanda knows kids because she’s still one at heart. When she is forced to act like an adult, she edits nonfiction books by grownup authors.

My Thoughts...

The tree Street Kids kids series is going to be a hit with the kids because it is full of mystery, adventure and so much fun. These are books that you can trust they are faith based books and  they even have messages that kids today need to hear. 

Readers are going to want to collect  this series.

I gave this book 4 stars. Stay turned because next week I will be sharing book two in the series The Hunt for Fang.

The Mary Reader received this book from the publisher for review. A favorable review was not required and all views expressed are our own.


  1. I need to let the teachers know about this.

  2. Some kids are going to enjoy this one.

  3. I wish these kinds would have been around for my kiddos!

  4. Hi, Mary, thank you so much for sharing Jack vs. the Tornado! I had fun writing them, and grownups have enjoyed reading them too. :) I'm working on the next two books now.
