Nine-year-old Gertie and her family have to leave their home quickly when Hurricane Katrina is about to flood New Orleans. Gertie must leave behind her friends, her house, her “stuff” and life as she knew it before the storm. While spending the year in Memphis, Gertie figures out what’s really important in life, including family, friends, faith and helping to make the world a better place.
This novel, for children ages 8-11, is based on the author’s own volunteer experiences on two relief missions to New Orleans. As the seventh anniversary of Hurricane Katrina passes, we see how important it is for children to learn resilience in the face of life’s difficulties.
