The book Ninth Ward by: Jewell Parker Rhodes is a great book! This amazing book takes place during huricane Katrina. Lanesha almost died when she was a newborn baby, her mom died having Lanesha. Lanesha did not die because Mama Ya-Ya saved her. During the hurricane Lanesha bonds with a young boy TaShon and the dog, spot. I like the part when Lanesha stands up for TaShon. if you like adventure books you will love this book!
