it was amazing
Read in August, 2011

Miles has decided to live with his father in New Orleans because his mother's house in Chicago is very crowded. Miles is looking forward to trying out for the football team. Miles thinks that his dad loves playing jazz more than him. Hurricane Katrina hits and Miles, his dad, and uncle have to seek refuge in the Superdome. Volponi's descriptions let you experience what living in the Superdome was like. Miles and his dad learn what really matters.

I listened to the Brilliance Audio production with Jacob C. Norman reading.He sings many verses of "When the Saints Come Marching In" in a poignant, natural way. Jazz music interludes add to the performance.
