Zane and the Hurricane
Narrator Jerry Dixon's strong performance and Philbrick's exceptional story about a young boy living through Hurricane Katrina ensure that this audiobook will become a classic. Zane Dupree travels to New Orleans from New Hampshire to meet his great-grandmother for the first time. Eventually, they're rescued by Tru, an elderly musician, and a feisty girl named Malvina. Dixon perfectly captures Zane's voice as well as Tru's warmth and calm—which keeps the kids centered—and prickly Malvina—who is dealing with her absent mother. When they seek help, the trio meets the best and worst of people—all impeccably conveyed by Dixon. Listeners can almost SEE the people caught up in this American tragedy. No algorithms here!

Zane and the Hurricane Ch 28
By Rodman Philbrick. From the author of Freak the Mighty , a poignant novel set during the horrors of Hurricane Katrina. Zane Dupree is a charismatic twelve-year-old boy of mixed race visiting a relative in New Orleans when Hurricane Katrina hits. Unexpectedly separated from all family, Zane and his dog experience the terror of Katrina's wind, rain, and horrific flooding. Facing death, they are rescued from an attic air vent by a kind, elderly musician and a scrappy young girl--both African American. The chaos that ensues as storm water drowns the city, shelter and food vanish, and police contribute to a dangerous, frightening atmosphere, creates a page-turning tale that completely engrosses the reader.
Rate this book. Bandy is a mutt like me. He's black and white and small enough to hide in a gym bag, except he can't keep from barking hi-hi-hi with his silly tongue hanging out and his little tail sticking up. Bandy, short for Bandit, because of the black marking across his eyes and nose. Don't get me wrong, he's the best dog in the world, and what happened wasn't really his fault, even if it nearly got me killed two times. Three if you count the tippy canoe.
