Barry and his family try to evacuate from their New Orleans home when they hear how bad Hurricane Katrina is predicted to be, but circumstances stop them from doing so ... and soon they will learn firsthand just how awful this storm is.

So for many years now, I've been seeing these "I Survive" books fly off the shelves at libraries and have wondered what makes them so great that kids love them immensely. I decided to download several e-book titles to evaluate them, selecting some books with events I knew a decent amount about already, events I knew a little bit about already, and events I really didn't know anything about previously. This book fits into the first category.

Perhaps because I lived through Katrina (thankfully, somewhere away from the storm and safe but I did see tons of news coverage before, during, and after the storm), this book wasn't as thrilling as I expected this series would be; I knew what to expect from the Superdome overcrowding to the levees breaking. I found myself having a hard time getting into it at first and I'm not quite sure why. The chapters are short and try to end on cliff-hanger type moments, which worked really well in the latter part of the book. But the beginning was a little too much laying the scene and felt a lot like any other standard mass market children's book introducing the family, a best friend, and a bullying neighbor. Once the story got going, I was little more into it but the story did seem too 'fresh' for me still. Of course, for the target audience, 2005 is before most of them were born so it is likely not going to have that affect on them.

Back matter includes an author's note questioning the failure of leadership that made Katrina such a disaster as well as a few quick facts about the storm. Illustrations throughout the book are not strictly necessary but they are good addition. This title features a cast of almost all Black characters, which is good from a diversity standpoint given that I don't believe that's true for most of the other books in the series. Some references to jazz and other cultural gems of New Orleans are also a nice touch. ( )

These books are short so I’ve been reading them quickly. Brought tears to my eyes. I can’t even imagine what those poor people went through. ( )

On August 5th, 2015, eleven-year old Barry Tucker lives in the ninth ward on New Orleans, Louisiana. As the hurricane notices were repeated over and over again "Leave Town!" Barry's family packs up and tries to leave. As the depart, the traffic is stalled and is miles long. Barry's little sister is sick. Barry's dad turns around and hopes to ride out the storm.

It might have been alright if the leeves in the Ninth Ward had not come apart, spewing millions of gallons of water throughout New Orleans, but in particular, the Ninth Ward was hit the hardest. With 125 mile per hour winds, Barry's family lose their house as the water continues to flood, and they head to the attic. Fortunately, years ago, Barry's grandfather left an ax in the corner of the attic, knowing a large storm will someday hit the area.

As the family tries to survive, Barry becomes lost from his family. Clinging to a large tree, Barry Rescuing his friends dog, they are saved by a brave young woman in a large yellow raft who is trying her best to navigate through the snakes, the torn-apart houses, the oil and all the debre. She takes Barry to a bridge when he is incredibly lucky in finding his family.

Fast forward to a few years later when only 19% of people have returned to the Ninth Ward. Barry's family flees to Texas and then they land in New York where a job awaits his father.
