Reviewed by Horn Book Guide Reviews (Horn Book Guide Reviews 2011 Fall)
The book begins on a terrible Monday in August, 2005, with eleven-year-old Barry Tucker clinging to a tree as Hurricane Katrina ravages New Orleans. The text then backs up to tell of Barry's family's attempt to escape the city and how everyone weathered the storm. Accessible writing and fast pacing will appeal to reluctant readers. Shadowy black-and-white illustrations enhance the story. Copyright 2011 Horn Book Guide Reviews.
