Summary
This book uses graphic novel format to depict the events of Hurricane Katrina though seven true stories of survival in the days leading up to and following the storm and flooding that occurred in its aftermath. Here we meet Denise, a counselor and social worker, and a sixth-generation New Orleanian who experienced the chaos of the Superdome; "The Doctor", a proud fixture of the French Quarter whose home was unscathed; Abbas and Darnell, two friends who faced the storm from Abbas's family-run market; Kwame, a pastor's son just entering his senior year of high school, and the young couple Leo and Michelle who both grew up in the city. Each was forced to confront the same wrenching decision, whether to stay or to flee. These stories present a city in chaos, and shines a light on the tragedies and triumphs that took place within it
