    " I really enjoyed this book about a young girl's experience with Hurricane Katrina. It gave wonderful insight on the less fortunate in New Orleans and provided great insight into cultural beliefs. "

    " Great read for all of us who are continuing to deal with the devastation left by the April 27th tornadoes. "

    " A wonderful, beautiful book. Lanesha is an amazing character. Too bad we all don't have the self-empowerment and positivity she does. "

    " Loved the writing style- very lyrical and poetic. Beautiful imagery and cadence. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Katie Jane | 4/4/2011

    " Listened to this one. The reader is fabulous. It only took me FOREVER to listen to because I had to take a break in the middle. Why? Because I was listening to it during the April 27 tornadoes, and it was hitting too close to home. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Barbara | 3/30/2011

    " Quick read. The strongest part of the novel is the description of the Hurricane and the breaking of the levees. As the author described the rising water, my heart was in my mouth. Excellent depiction of the fear that must have gone through the 9th Ward. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Martha | 3/19/2011

    " So sad and beautiful. I became pretty attached to Lanesha, and would definitely read another book about her. I want to know what happens next! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Abby | 3/6/2011

    " Jewell Parker Rhodes uses imagery that evokes all the senses to paint a picture of New Orleans' Ninth Ward and then builds tension pitch-perfectly depicting Hurricane Katrina and its aftermath. "

    " A slow start, but an excellent book. "
