Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 9 Up—This title looks at myriad topics related to the catastrophe and its aftermath. It follows the series format of offering reprinted articles that present positive and negative views. Researchers will be interested in some of the discussions, such as the effects of global warming on future storms, the need to restore wetlands, and the response of FEMA (Federal Emergency Management Agency) to help victims. Students may be less interested in the mental-health services that failed the populations, the need for improved school reform, and the lack of media attention to the Mississippi coast. The lessons learned from this hurricane are expected to be models for how to better handle disasters in the future; several pieces take issue with the local, state, and national degrees of preparedness.—Peggy Fleming, formerly at Churchville-Chili High School, Churchville, NY
