I Survived is one of my FAVORITE book series, ever! You should really read all of the books because I bought it and have the whole series. If you're someone who likes historical fiction, action, and a little mystery, this is a book for you! I will be making more comments on HIT book series. Stay tuned for my next Review & Rate! ~ T@¿|¿¿

Dear Ms. Tarshis, You did a very nice job with “I Survived Hurricane Katrina, 2005”. In an entertaining story aimed at school-aged folks, you successfully incorporated: - A history lesson about New Orleans and it's preparedness, or lack thereof, for the big storm that was inevitable and finally occurred in 2005. - A socio-economic explanation of the Lower 9th Ward, and different reasons why people did not heed the warning to evacuate, - A nice morality tale about bullying - Perhaps the best illustrations of any book I've seen in your I Survived stories up until now and you did it all in about 100 pages with readily-readable font and spacing! Mind you, I wish you'd been able to include something about the nightmare madhouse that was the Superdome during the disaster. However, you managed to cram so much into such a little space that I have to concede I don't think it would have been possible to do so without overwhelming your text OR extending it past the effective story length. I've read and reviewed 4 books in your series so far, and I believe I have a couple of others on my “to be read” pile. Based on what I've seen to date, I certainly am looking forward to those books AND to acquiring and reading the ones I have NOT come across as yet. Keep up the good work. Sincerely, Andrew RATING: 5 stars. Great job.
