    1. This was a great view into what happened in New Zealand in 1988! I loved the simple way the book was written, and also liked how the story was portrayed. I also really enjoyed the fact that some of the characters were actually real people, experiencing real things there.I didn't enjoy some of the things the fictional main character in this story thought, but overall it was okay. I recommend this book because of the great history lesson here.

    2. My New Zealand story-I loved how Kath Beatiehas made a dairy on the Cyclone in 1988.I learned a lot and enjoyed it.
