Falling to Earth, by Kate Southwood.

SouthwoodAll three children are home, in various stages of recuperating from chicken pox, when a tornado rips through the Illinois town creating swaths of devastation but leaving their home and livelihood (and family, see : chicken pox) untouched.  At first it’s miraculously amazing but then the townspeople– no other of whom was completely unscathed– turn less than honorable.
