What other readers are saying about this title:
*** stars This is an amazing story of an African American family over 12 days of the approach, duration, and aftermath of hurricane Katrina. The teenage daughter is pregnant who finds her heroines in mythology. One brother has a fighting pit bull. Ms. Ward does not pull any punches in describing the brutality of the life of this poor family. It took me a while to engage with the book, but was soon invested in the survival of the family. recommend

Incredible book follows a summer of a family living in Louisiana - includes dog fights, poverty, pregnancy, living without a mother, and ends with Hurricane Katrina. This book broke my heart over and over again. - Erin B.
