Re­cent years have

shown us just how cat­a­clysmic the weather can be, with tsunamis and hur­ri­canes dev­as­tat­ing coastal re­gions. Luck­ily, such phe­nom­ena are con­fined to the sea, run­ning out of en­ergy when they reach land – but what if they were pow­er­ful enough to keep on go­ing?

Here, global warm­ing has led to the for­ma­tion of hy­per­canes, su­per- sized hur­ri­canes that de­stroy ev­ery­thing in their path. Cadet Jansin Nordqvist has spent her whole life hid­ing be­low ground, be­liev­ing no one could have sur­vived above – but she’s wrong.

Some Fine Day doesn’t have the com­plex­ity or am­bi­gu­ity that raises some YA fic­tion to lit­er­ary heights, but then it doesn’t pre­tend to. It is, how­ever, a pacey, easy- to- read tale that can be en­joyed by adults and teenagers alike. Rhian Drinkwa­ter
