Publisher's Summary

Before becoming America's first-ever female network chief meteorologist or appearing on Dancing with the Stars, ABC News's Ginger Zee checked herself into a mental health hospital.
Natural Disaster: I Cover Them. I Am One. is Ginger's heartbreaking, hilarious, and harshly honest life story - from Dickhead's (you won't soon forget that name) deck on Lake Michigan to her storm-chasing dream at ABC News.
Ginger opens up about her lifelong battle with crippling depression, her romances that ranged from misguided to dangerous, and her tumultuous professional path. This cyclone of stories may sound familiar to some - it's just that Ginger's personal tempests happened while she was covering some of the most devastating storms in recent history, including a ferocious tornado that killed a legend in the meteorology field.
She also canceled her first wedding - twice - because she finally listened to her inner voice, which was saying, This isn't right, but then she happened to fall in love with her gay best friend. Yes, twice. Yes, gay.
On the sunny side, this book is for all the mistake makers who have learned to forgive others and themselves - even in the aftermath of man-made, or in this case Ginger-made, disasters. It's a story that every young woman should read, a story about finding love in the world and finding it in yourself.
Beloved by Good Morning America's audience, Ginger is a daily presence for millions. She's gained fame for her social media presence, which is as unfiltered as Natural Disaster - from baby barf to doggy doo-doo. She's shattered the glass ceiling for women in meteorology but admits here first she's the one natural disaster she couldn't have forecast.

My life in Ginger’s eyes...kind of

My life parallels Ginger’s life in so many ways! Thank you Ginger for letting me know we can be a natural disaster but still a successful persons. From the always moving childhood, to the refuse to be in my own adulthood, to the days upon days in a mental hospital, to bring me any idea of adventure I am fearless: I could relate. I haven’t found my perfect happiness but my drive to accomplish goals will get me there. My struggles with whether I belong in this earth or with my God in Heaven will undoubtably always remain. Thank you for your story! May God bless you and Keto you safe!

One of my new favorite books!

"Natural Disaster" by Ginger Zee is a breath of fresh air and a powerful story of overcoming adversity. Ginger's writing style is energetic, fun and full of personality. Memoir can be a tough genre, as the fellow author of "Wide Awake and Dreaming: A Memoir of Narcolepsy" -- I've struggled with "medical/mental illness memoirs" myself. This book is different.

Ginger strikes the PERFECT balance of honesty and inspiration. She candidly shares her challenges with saying no, with finding healthy relationships, with living with depression and narcolepsy, etc. Yet she takes responsibility and control of her destiny and bravely advanced her personal and professional life. I recently read Andrea Duckworth's "GRIT" and Ginger Zee 100% exemplifies the passion and perseverance principles described in GRIT!

Congratulations and thank you, Ginger! As a fellow woman with narcolepsy and author, you are an inspiration and role model to so many, myself included. Thank you for embodying Project Sleep's awareness campaign slogan: NARCOLEPSY: NOT ALONE! On my blog, the footer reads: "Chase your dreams or they'll chase you." Reading your book, I think that's exactly what you've done and I'm forever grateful.
