Full Text Reviews:

Booklist - 02/01/2011 This novel in the I Survived series follows 11-year-old Barry Tucker, who resides with his family in New Orleans’ Lower Ninth Ward in 2005. Though the Tuckers attempt to evacuate before Hurricane Katrina strikes, they end up trapped in their home as the storm approaches. Although the events depicted here could be scary for younger children, Tarshis offers a hopeful resolution, and a frank epilogue gives additional facts about the disaster. Expressive illustrations capture the drama of the storm and its aftermath, but the book’s real power comes from its exploration of what it means to be a hero. - Copyright 2011 Booklist.
