Publisher's Summary

In this intensely personal and moving memoir, Lisa Karlin provides a gripping account of her family's hurricane evacuation experiences and all that followed in the decade after Hurricane Katrina. Her story begins in August 2005, when Lisa, her husband, 13-year-old daughter, 11-year-old son, and two dogs evacuated New Orleans for what they thought would be a two-day "hurrication". Her day-by-day account of the weeks that follow vividly chronicles the unprecedented displacement of thousands of Americans, and on a personal level, describes how her family makes the trifecta of major life decisions: where to live, where to work, and where to enroll their children in school. With unflinching candor, Lisa Karlin provides a first-hand commentary on how everyday life has been impacted by Katrina's aftermath and how, a decade later, there are still lingering effects of one of the most devastating events in American history.

This is a story about personal struggle and growth. I recommend it for anyone who has experienced the kindness of others in the wake of a natural disaster. It's a truly inspirational piece.
