Life as you know it totally and forever changed due to natural disaster. Rebuilding infrastructure, restoring power and being reduced to basic survival.

Cover: Dark water rising

As Evansville rebuilds, cleans up, and moves on after remnants of Hurricane Ike hit, consider the courage of Miles and Seth, two teens who survive deadly hurricanes - their uncertainty, their loss, their choices, their future.

In Hurricane Song by Paul Volponi (Black and White, Rooftop, Rucker Park Setup) Miles moves from Chicago to New Orleans to live with his father two months before Hurricane Katrina struck. Father and son must put aside their differences in order to survive Katrina and life inside the Superdome.

In Dark Water Rising by Marian Hale, Seth and his family are also newly arrived residents of Galveston, TX. On September 8, 1900 a deadly hurricane hits. "This coming-of-age story describes how Seth struggles to reach safety, works for his own survival and that of others, and comes to terms with change and loss."

For a more "out-there" disaster, check out "Life As We Knew It" by Susan Beth Pfeffer. The novel is a gripping look at life inside a world-changing disaster.
