It all begins when twins (a boy named Simon and a girl named Ruby) and their parents move to a farm during a drought. Ruby, while riding her bike, meets a strange man who tells her that she needs to get back to the house to help her brother. When Ruby gets home she finds Simon is sick and a storm is in full swing. Ruby later learns that this is because Simon is a part of a group of people who can influence and make weather, in other words he's a Storm Maker. Simon has the potential to be the most powerful Storm Maker ever, but the twins need to be careful because the evil Chairman of all the Storm Makers knows about Simon. Ruby has to keep Simon from falling into the wrong hands. The Storm Makers was a great book and I recommend it to anyone from ages 9 - 60!
