Publisher Description

Newbery Honor author Rodman Philbrick presents a gripping yet poignant novel about a 12-year-old boy and his dog who become trapped in New Orleans during the horrors of Hurricane Katrina.Zane Dupree is a charismatic 12-year-old boy of mixed race visiting a relative in New Orleans when Hurricane Katrina hits. Unexpectedly separated from all family, Zane and his dog experience the terror of Katrina's wind, rain, and horrific flooding. Facing death, they are rescued from an attic air vent by a kind, elderly musician and a scrappy young girl--both African American. The chaos that ensues as storm water drowns the city, shelter and food vanish, and police contribute to a dangerous, frightening atmosphere, creates a page-turning tale that completely engrosses the reader. Based on the facts of the worst hurricane disaster in U.S. history, Philbrick includes the lawlessness and lack of government support during the disaster as well as the generosity and courage of those who risked their lives and safety to help others. Here is an unforgettable novel of heroism in the face of truly challenging circumstances.

Amazing Story

Coming from a not so big reader, this book was AMAZING. I had to read this for summer reading and I was quite disappointed but I kept on reading and immediately coped with the characters. Each chapter had me begging for more. I originally planned on reading 23 pages a day to get it read before school started and that plan was abandoned. I read the whole book in 2 days. This book has an amazing story to it and if your looking for a good story to read I defiantly recommend this book. I easily pronounce this the best book I have ever read. A short book, but a good one.
