Ginger Zee is the chief meteorologist at ABC News. You see her covering the nation's weather headlines on Good Morning America and across all ABC News broadcasts and digital platforms. Zee also hosts an ABC News original digital series "Food Forecast," focused on climate and its impact on agriculture. Zee's love of adventure does not stop at studying the atmosphere in the center of the storm. She para-hawked in Nepal, para-glided in the Himalayas and the Andes, dove with sharks in the Bahamas, rappelled 27 stories down the exterior facade of the Wit Hotel in Chicago, plus has gone ice boat racing and surfing. She lives in New York City with her husband and son.
Readers may recognize Zee from Good Morning America or Dancing with the Stars. She first fell in love with weather while watching storms over Lake Michigan, later deciding to be a meteorologist and pursuing her goal with intense drive. Though much of her memoir has a light tone, Zee also discusses her struggles with mental health and an abusive relationship. With writing that's approachable and reader-focused, occasionally dipping into meta commentary, Zee gives readers a behind-the-scenes tour of life as a network meteorologist. Natural Disaster chronicles Zee's hard work in all areas of her life and her ability to find the eye of any storm.--Booklist
