Summary

The storm of the century—and the survival story of a lifetime!

It's the end of August 2005, and a big hurricane is blowing in to New Orleans, Louisiana. Barry's family plans to evacuate the Ninth Ward with everyone else, but when Barry's little sister gets violently ill, they must return to their home and stick out the storm.

At first, everything seems fine. But then the levees break, the water rises, Barry is swept out of his home, and everything changes. Stranded in the floodwaters with no idea where he is and only a stranded dog by his side, Barry must find the courage to survive the storm of the century.

Lauren Tarshis brings history's most exciting and terrifying events to life in this new fictional series. Readers will be transported by stories of amazing kids and how they survived!

Audio extra: Includes author's notes, read by Lauren Tarshis!

Very suspenseful and interesting story

We liked this story because the author included many true facts about Hurricane Katrina. She presented the story in a suspenseful and interesting way. Mr. Powell did a great job reading the book.
