Tara and the Towering Wave: An Indian Ocean Tsunami Survival Story

When her mother announces a holiday vacation to Thailand, Tara isn't thrilled. She'd rather stay home with her friends, but Mom is determined they use the girls' trip to explore their Thai heritage. Tara is reluctant to travel so far from home, especially to a country she doesn't feel connected to.

And then disaster strikes. The day after Christmas, a massive tsunami sweeps through Phuket, Thailand. Tara's resort vacation suddenly becomes a fight to survive — and find her mother in the wreckage. This nail-biting entry from the Girls Survive series brings the 2004 earthquake and tsunami to vivid life. Discussion questions and non-fiction resources complete the picture of this tragic disaster which cost so many lives.
