It’s the summer of 1982, and for Scott and Cath, everything is about to change.
Growing up across the street from each other, Scott and Cath have been best friends for most of their lives. Now they’ve graduated high school, and Cath is off to college while Scott stays at home trying to get his band off the ground. Neither of them realized that their first year after high school would be so hard.
Fortunately, Scott and Cath still have each other, and it’s through their letters that they survive heartache, annoying roommates, family dramas, and the pressure of figuring out what to do with the rest of their lives. And through it all, they realize that the only person they’ve ever wanted to turn to is each other. But does that mean they should think about being more than friends? One thing is clear: Change is an inescapable part of growing up, and we share unbreakable bonds with the friends who help us navigate it.

We Are Still Tornadoes by Michael Kun and Susan Mullen is cute and charming. This entire story is written through letters. Reading through letters made the story a very fast read.

The reader is introduced to Cath. Cath is in her first year of college and is trying to cope with her parents splitting up. Her father left her mom after getting his secretary pregnant.

Then we meet Scott. Scott didn’t apply for any colleges. He is working for his dad and is a song writer in a band. This is the first time that Cath and Scott have been away from each other.

I really liked getting to know these two characters through their letters. It is a fun and light-hearted read. I think the writing was good. I look forward to see what other projects these two will have together. I really enjoyed We Are Still Tornadoes.
