Praise

Praise for Disaster Strikes!:

* “A thrill ride punctuated with spectacular failures—but also spectacular successes.” —Kirkus Reviews, starred review

*
“The [is] text versatile, efficiently functioning as a collection of short reads or a balanced, book-length narrative . . . Always fascinating, at times unsettling, and highly recommended for elementary and middle school collections.” —SLJ, starred review

“Each compelling episode is crafted as a self-standing adventure, with an opening hook and a satisfying close, making this an excellent source for readalouds for middle-school classes as well as a pleasure for independent readers.” —BCCB

“Kluger manages to combine suspenseful storytelling with scientific writing, showcasing the successes of the programs alongside the failures that ended in death or near misses for astronauts. Even students who claim that they don’t like to read will find these ‘you-are-there’ moments totally engaging.” —SLC
