      I still remember Hurricane Katrina well. I was seven years old when the stories began to hit the news here in Canada, and since this disastrous storm swept through, New Orleans has had some trouble returning to its former state. So many people lost their homes, their businesses and even loved ones in this catastrophic event. This book shares the story of "Barry", a young boy caught up in the whole mess and struggling to survive Katrina's harsh and brutal conditions. Of course, the story has less [...]

Barry and his friend Jay are huge fans of superhero cartoons and they planned on entering a contest for it. They keep trying to avoid a bully named Abe and his dog named Cruz. Barry and his friend Jay kept hearing on radios of a huge hurricane warning. Barry and his family pack up and leave the city. This means that Barry can't enter the contest and he also won't see his friend for a while. [...]

    8. Jeffery on said:

      This book is great, it was intense, sad, and a bit terrifying because I can imagine how bad it`d be to be in this situation where you get separated from you're family and having to survive the deadly hurricane that destroyed the city and killed thousands. It`s smart that the author put in the intense part as the start and then putted in how it all started. The ending was a little bad because for me I think cliffhangers are terrible, I just want to know if some of their friends died or if they wo [...]

      In this book, I Survived: Hurricane Katrina, 2005, is about Barry and Cleo, and their epic survival tale of one of the biggest hurricanes of all time. Barry and Cleo are getting ready to evacuate from Hurricane Katrina by leaving town. However, they are stuck in HEAVY traffic, and when Cleo gets awfully sick, they have to go back home.

      Personal Response I think that this book was really good despite the fact that it had some things that I couldn't believe myself. It has some really cool things about the book too about how the boy in the story was on top of the car and traveled pretty far on it.Plot Summary The story is about a boy named Barry who lives in New Orleans with his family. In New Orleans the news were saying that there was going to be a hurricane going on there. This hurricane was really dangerous because it was a 1 [...]

      I Survived Hurricane Katrina, 2005Personal Response This book started off pretty good. Once the hurricane hit, I thought the Tucker family would have been long gone. Yet they weren’t, due to how much traffic there was.I truly think that the Tuckers should’ve stayed with Uncle Dave at his nightclub. They didn’t stay there or at the Metro Dom. They stayed in their little house in the low land. Plot It all started when Barry’s dad said,” hurry up and pack we’re leaving.” Now Barry [...]

    17. Trevor Flease on said:

      Personal ResponseI thought that this book was very interesting and had a lot of meaning. Barry, being a younger kid, probably didn't know what to do in that situation. I feel like he handled it very well and was a great role model for Cleo. Barry also rescued one of his friend’s dog while it was being swept away from the flood waters. For Barry being a young kid, he handled everything really well.Plot Barry and his family heard that a big hurricane was projected to hit their town. Barry's uncl [...]

    18. David Lopez-sanders on said:

      SPOILER ALERT!!! By the title of the book, it is easy to tell the setting. The main setting is New Orleans, Louisiana in 2005. The conflict is some people's struggle to survive the devastating once-Category 5 storm that terrorized the Florida and the Gulf Coast. There is one main family in the book. There is Barry, who is the main character. He has a younger sister, Cleo. Then there is his mom and dad. There is also Barry's friend Jay, who is more of a secondary character than a main character, [...]

    19. Danny on said:

      Personal Response: I think this book was pretty good especially when it started out. I thought that they had a really good plot going on saying how their parents didn't think it would be that bad when it actually turned out to be a really bad storm. I also liked in the first 20 pages they showed us more of the back round of the people and what was going on before the storm hit. The only thing I disliked about the book is where their family wanted to go before the storm. To me I think they should [...]

    20. Luke F on said:

      I recently read the book I Survived Hurricane Katrina, 2005, by: Lauren Tarshis. I loved this book because it was suspenseful. It was suspenseful because most of the time Berry and his dog Cruz are hanging on for dear life to an overturned car in a huge flood that sweeps right through New Orleans, Louisiana. This book was so good that it kept me reading till the very last word on the very last page. Even though this story is fiction it sounded like the characters were real. Lauren Tarshis did a [...]

      This book was such a cute, quick re-read. I'm currently reading for the Biannual Bibliothon and one of the challenges was to read a book from your childhood. I read a bunch of these I Survived books and I absolutely adored them. They were definitely my favorite books as I was younger, so much that at that time, my favorite genre was historical fiction! Anyway I would definitely recommend this to all little kids.

    25. Nicholas Dunn on said:

      This book is about a New Orleans family and how hurricane Katrina effected them. In mid 2005, all of New Orleans evacuated, but not everyone could get out. This certain family was trapped and nearly died trying to save others! This genre is realistic fiction because it gave you a taste in what it would be like to live through it. This book was very dramatic and brought the reader into it but overall it was okay. Not the best book but also not the worst
