A Fantastic Katrina Story

It seems that everyone who lives on the Gulf coast has a Katrina story and I've heard many of them. Short of living through it though, you really have no sense of the destruction that came with this horrible storm. More than leveled buildings and flooded streets, Katrina destroyed and forever changed thousands of lives. Hurricane Boy, by Laura Roach Dragon, gives us a huge glimpse of the horrors that so many people endured both during and after Katrina. This book is compelling but also beautifully written. Her characters are vivid and full of life and I laughed, cried, and cheered with Hollis and his family. I loved this story!
