A good, but tough book to read. It's the kind of book you struggle through not because it's poorly written, but because the author does such a good job of making you feel her anxiety, frustration and zillion other emotions. It still blows my mind how colossally the government (federal, state and local) screwed up on Katrina and the rippling effects, even years later, that has had on the people of New Orleans and the other hard-hit Gulf-coast regions effected by this massive storm. Nothing like this should EVER happen again

I read this book because my husband is from New Orleans. I never had a very good idea of what everyone went through after the floods. There are parts that made me cry and very angry that as a nation we abandon New Orleans after the Hurricane. If you want to know how people survived after the floods pick up this book and educate yourself. It's a sad, funny story of how 2 people overcame the devastation that was Hurricane Katrina and built back their home and community.

"Review" by , "Wagner captures the nostalgia, the heartbreak and the friendships spawned in Katrina's turbulent aftermath with raw emotional honesty free of sentimentality. Unflinching, humorous and heartfelt."
"Review" by , "Wagner's is a distinctive and funny voice, with that tone of the committed (and at times should be committed) New Orleanian....[W]e end up with this fine book, with its searing honesty, its gallows humor and its survivor spirit."
"Synopsis" by , NPR's This American Life contributor Wagner tells the story of how she and a few eccentric pals rebuilt their lives after returning home to hurricane ravaged New Orleans.
