Miles has only been living with his musician father in New Orleans for two months when Hurricane Katrina hits - and they haven't really been getting along. His dad lives for jazz, while Miles' first love is football. But father and son must set aside their differences when they seek refuge in the crowded Superdome.

What begins as a safe haven from the storm soon turns into a nightmare as the power fails and gangs of thugs compete for turf. When his father decides to rebel, Miles must make a choice that will alter their relationship - and both of their lives - forever.

From award-winning author Paul Volponi comes this tale of how low humanity can sink in desperate times and how loudly hope can sing against the howl of tragedy. Download and start listening now!

Listener Opinions

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Charlene | 2/13/2014

    " A true reflection of just how crazy things really got in New Orleans both before and after Hurricane Katrina. It shows the terrible side of human nature. "

    " Excellent book. This is it, a realistic look at what it was like to live through Katrina at the New Orleans Superdome. It is a fastpased, pageturner. I read it in less than two hours in one sitting. It is only 136 pages. The book does have a good deal of strong language including words such as: shit (19), damn (11), niggger (5), bitches (3), ass (8), piss (5), bastard (4), hell (5), and fuck (4). The strong language does not take away from the book but gives it a more realistic feel. A mature middle school student can handle this title and the realistic protrayal of this historic disaster provided they are allowed to read this type of book. "

    " This book is a great selection for high school students and is great historical fiction in that students can identify with it and the contemporary issues it presents. "
