On August 29, 2005, Hurricane Katrina's monstrous winds and surging water overwhelmed the protective levees around low-lying New Orleans, Louisiana. Eighty percent of the city flooded, in some places under twenty feet of water. Property damages across the Gulf Coast topped $100 billion. One thousand eight hundred and thirty-three people lost their lives. The tale of this historic storm and the drowning of an American city is one of selflessness, heroism, and courage -- and also of incompetence, racism, and criminality. Don Brown's kinetic art and as-it-happens narrative capture both the tragedy and triumph of one of the worst natural disasters in American history.… (más)

Middle school. This book talks about the events of Hurricane Katrina and how it effected New Orleans. This would be great for students to use to learn more about the even because it is very engaging since it is in graphic novel form. Sometimes students can think of research or nonfiction reading as boring, but this can help them get more excited about it.

YA 2018 Caudill nominee. The whole sequence of devastating events is covered from the storm's brief buzz over Florida to its slam into New Orleans, the levees breaking, the chaos that ensued, the deaths and destruction, the lack of leadership, and the massive failure of systems we rely on. Though a grim topic, it is handled gently and graciously with powerful images in soft murky colors that reflect the storm's sweeping winds and muddy debris. Despite it being recent history, there was much to learn and remember, not only about the event itself, but about our common humanity and how to do better in the future. ( )

I have a lot of friends who came from New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina hit and I never took the time to understand what exactly happened when Katrina hit. This is a powerful story that is sad but honest. This can be helpful in science when talking about the weather. ( )

The theme of this book would be, disaster can bring out the best (or worst) in people. The summary of this book is all the facts and pictures of what happened before, during, and after Hurricane Katrina. It summed up what the people of New Orleans went through, saw, and had to clean up. It gave facts about how the city is still not back to what it used to be, population wise. The pictures gave you a glimpse of what it looked like to live and rescue people down there. I really enjoyed reading through this book. I had learned some things about this powerful hurricane that I never knew before. I felt it was even more powerful having the pictures right there showing what these people were going through. I would truly recommend anyone to pick up and read this book to learn more about this hurricane. Curricular connections would include recent history lessons, weather, or natural disasters. ( )
