I read this book after my son did, and it is a very gripping, very lovely tale of a boy named Saint Louis Armstrong Beach - great name, huh? - and his dog and their ordeal during Hurricane Katrina. Lots to ponder here - the central character and his force of personality, the commitment that people have towards their family, city, and neighbors, the scary portrait of hunkering down in an attic during the height of that devastating storm. Yes, it's written for upper elementary/early middle schoolers, but I enjoyed it very much.
