About the Author:

Blake Hoena grew up in central Wisconsin, where he wrote stories about robots conquering the moon and trolls lumbering around the woods behind his parents house. He now lives in St. Paul, Minnesota, with his wife, two kids, a dog, and a couple of cats. Blake continues to make up stories about things like space aliens and superheroes, and he has written more than 70 chapter books and graphic novels for children.

From Booklist:

Designed to give readers a sense of being caught in the 2005 disaster, this entry in the You Choose: Modern History series offers fact-based experiences of three fictional victims: a 10-year-old child living in New Orleans’ Lower Ninth Ward; a small-business owner near Lake Pontchartrain; and a Biloxi firefighter. Readers are prompted to make choices for the POV character, such as whether to evacuate or stay at home, then skip pages to see what happens next. Some decisions lead to a character’s death. The text is illustrated with small color photos of the storm and its aftermath. A set of discussion questions related to Common Core principles follows a final chapter summarizing the overall damage and some of the infrastructure improvements made in the hurricane’s wake. Informative, and this could also stimulate personal emergency planning. Grades 4-6. --John Peters
