RGG: The point of view of twelve-year-old Lanesha's survival of Hurricane Katrina is magical. Her ability to see ghosts creates empathy not horror. Intense realism with Lanesha's indomitable spirit make for an amazing read. Reading Interest: 11-13.

Raised by Mama Ya-Ya, the midwife who delivered her, Lanesha is blessed with the “second sight” and an extraordinary love, both of which help her endure childhood teasing and the ravaging impact of Hurricane Katrina.
