Book hasn't been out yet, so I obviously haven't read it, but I plan to. I just got done writing a research paper on 'When the Levees Broke' where Ms. LeBlanc is interviewed multiple times and she by far stands out in the film. I applaud her on her willingness to tell her story, so that others may know what exactly happened. Can't wait for the book to come out.

I highly recommend this some times funny, sad, but always eloquent book by Phyllis Montana-Lablanc. It takes you head first in to Katrina and gives you an unblinking account of the iconvenience caused by the storm and the soul bending damage from those that dropped the ball on the rescue efforts. The glimpses in to Phyllis' past helps give even more weight to why her story of survival through the storm and it's aftermath are even more remarkable.

I would like to thank Phyllis Montana-LaBlanc. She has really opened the eyes of the true meaning of Racism in this counrty, the racism of color and money. If your are poor and not White you are not worthy and I am sure that she tells ALL in her story. I will be spreading the word about the book to all races in my circle.

Frist I'd like to thank Phyllis {for being brave and staying true to the game} I lost my best friend {my mother} The hardest and sad part is I was away in Alaska secureing their skies and passengers. So I can't wait to read this book, it may help me find peace.

Im glad i only ordered the sample on my nook. The storyline intrigued me but there were too many cuss words in even the first chapter that i knew that i would not want to cont to read it. Especially since my daughter also wanted to read this book about hurricane katrina. We purchased a different book about this subject.

It's really a shame Ms Montana-LeBlanc has so little command of the English language. Her emotions were real and tortured but her expressions were offensive. By paragraph 3, the F word appeared in the text and continued, and continued, and continued. This is not a book I want to keep for posterity. In fact it is not a book I want to keep at all. I very much looked forward to reading this book because I live in a close suburb of New Orleans. I evacuated my house for Katrina with my elderly parents, my adult son, and 2 dogs. And yes, we all wondered if this would be the BIG ONE or if it would pass us by like the hurricanes of the past few years. It didn't. My house flooded as well as my parents' house. Yes, the response by the authorities was abominable. The anger, the frustration, and the disbelief were very real. The horror in the city was undeniable. There are no words to adequately describe it and profanity just doesn't do it for me.
