Reader Reviews for "Not Just The Levees Broke My Story During and After Hurricane Katrina"

Reviewed by Karla Dorman, The StormSpinner 11/16/2008
Just got this book at our local library: "Not Just the Levees Broke" is a story about fear. About loss. About life. About finding oneself again. A powerful read that will take the reader into the heart of the storm and its aftermath on a city and on its residents, on a nation still recovering ... thank God, this young lady didn't lose her soul. It is the vibrant heartbeat of a city slowly coming back.

(((HUGS))) and love, Karla.

On limited income: I get extra money, I'm ordering a copy of this must read book. :)
