Drowned City: Hurricane Katrina and New Orleans

Don Brown. HMH.

Gr 7 Up–Attention-grabbing text, harrowing eyewitness accounts, and enlightening—and emotionally unflinching—sepia-hued illustrations pull readers into the eye of the storm. This riveting graphic novel chronicles the hurricane’s destructiveness, the awful reality of trying to survive, and the many human failures that made Katrina’s impact all the more devastating.
