About the book:
Most kids her age can’t wait to get out of small town Bayou Perdu, but sixteen-year-old Evangeline Riley lives for being on out the water under the endless Louisiana sky. When Hurricane Katrina hits, it’s not just Evangeline’s town that’s destroyed: her family falls apart as each member struggles to start over in Atlanta. But there’s a silver lining: the love she finds with fellow refugee, Tru. Torn between rebuilding the place she loves and making a new life, she has to decide if home is more than just a place, and if letting go is the only way to move forward.
