Ninth Ward
Jewell Parker Rhodes
From New York Times bestselling and award-winning author Jewell Parker Rhodes comes a heartbreaking and uplifting tale of survival in the face of Hurricane Katrina. Twelve-year-old Lanesha lives in a tight-knit community in New Orleans' Ninth Ward. She doesn't have a fancy house like her uptown family or lots of friends like the other kids on her street. But what she does have is Mama Ya-Ya, her fiercely loving caretaker, wise in the ways of the world and able to predict the future. So when Mama Ya-Ya's visions show a powerful hurricane--Katrina--fast approaching, it's up to Lanesha to call upon the hope and strength Mama Ya-Ya has given her to help them both survive the storm. From the New York Times bestselling author of Ghost Boys and Towers Falling, Ninth Ward is a deeply emotional story about transformation and a celebration of resilience, friendship, and family--as only love can define it.Binding Type: PaperbackAuthor: Jewell Parker RhodesPublisher: Little, Brown Books for Young ReadersPublished: 04/10/2012ISBN: 9780316043083Pages: 217Weight: 0.40lbsSize: 7.50h x 5.10w x 0.60dAccelerated Reader Quiz #/Name: 139032 / Ninth WardReading Level: 3.3 / Interest Level: Middle Grade / Point Value: 4
