Hurricane Song by Paul Volponi

After Miles Shaw goes to live with his Jazz playing father in New Orleans, Katrina strikes. When Miles' Uncle's car breaks down fleeing the city, they are left with seeking refuge in the Superdome. Miles and his dad grow closer as they survive under terrible conditions. I think this was an important book and a story that needed to be told but is was good not great. Some of the end seemed to be rushed. I vote nay for TU.

I enjoyed this very much and will probably recomend this to Teens who are looking for a quick read. It gives a very powerful account of what it was like duirng Katrina and especially being in the Superdome.Having said that I don't think it's TU worthy so am voting a NO
