If you are looking for a fantastic, funny, crazy adventure for your middle grade reader, J.C. Cervantes’ novel The Storm Runner is an excellent choice. A modern take on Maya folklore, it offers readers a rollicking adventure with disgusting foes from the Underworld, crazy Maya gods and other unexpected creatures, and is helped along in his adventure by an unlikely cast of characters including his pro wrestling-mad Uncle Hondo, his nearest neighbors who consist of the blind phone-psychic Mrs. Cab and the besotted Mr. Ortiz who is obsessed with growing hot peppers, and a girl with more than a few secrets of her own.
The Storm Runner is narrated in the quite expressive, honest, earnest voice of its 13-year-old hero, Zane Obispo. An unlikely hero he is – born with a limb difference, he is used to being taunted by classmates for an obvious limp due to his “gimpy” leg, and so he’s happiest on his own, exploring the dormant volcano near his home in the New Mexico desert with his three-legged dog Rosie. Did I mention that his mom doesn’t like him exploring the volcano, or that he’s been warned away by Mrs. Cab?
When he sneaks out one night to explore the volcano, he sees something bizarre – and soon realizes that nothing in his life is what he thought it was, or people are more than he knows them to be – including the father that he never met.
He’s a character that means well, but sometimes breaks the rules – even if he has good intentions behind his decisions – and one of those decisions fulfills a Maya prophecy at which he is the center. This story unfolds with a breakneck pace and a whole lot of imagination, from mystical ways of travel, crazy inventions from a diabetic giant (who grows when his blood sugar gets low), and breakaway twists and turns. This book is pure FUN.
The Storm Runner is part of Rick Riordan Presents, a Disney imprint, which publishes books by middle grade authors from underrepresented cultures and backgrounds, to let them tell their own stories inspired by the mythology and folklore of their own heritage. It has the feel of one of Rick Riordan’s Percy Jackson tales, only with a disabled Hispanic teen at the center of a great Maya prophecy and tangled in Maya folklore. It’s a lot to celebrate here, and Zane is a brave, realistic hero that I think will appeal to middle schoolers (and those of us of an older age who still love a great adventure.) ( )

diverse children's middlegrade demigod adventure (boy who walks with a cane turns out to be half Maya god and must save the world from destruction by demon god).
This is almost like reading a Rick Riordan--and that is AWESOME (yay for authors who not only use their powers for good, but who actively seek out ways to make their good do the MOST good). I like the differently-abled representation as well as the Mayan ancestry (spanish words sprinkled throughout) and the smart alecky humor and action should keep Percy Jackson fans entertained. ( )

The Rick Riordan Presents imprint has a lot of really strong series. This one wasn't as engaging, for me, as many of the others, but middle grade readers will eat it up. ( )

I liked Zane's voice a lot, and the details of his family and the magic were well drawn and deeply entertaining. ( )
