    I have to admit, this cover totally scared me when I first saw the book. To be perfectly honest when ever I was holding the book while reading, I always put my fingers FAR, far away from the sharks mouth. No joke. I only stopped that at the middle of the end chapter. Speaking of the honest truth ...

    I survied The San Franscisco Earthquake was awsome. It was like I was in the earthquake. I loved the similies writen when the earthquake just began to rumble. I also liked when the narator told the storys of grandpop. The book was scary, funny, and action packed. I recomend it to all my friends.

The whole series is basically in the point of view of a person who survived a war, a horrible event, a terrorism attack, etc. It's basically a history book, but it sounds like a narrative and it's really to-the-point. This book is about L...
