A typhoon, a sad dying, boys, one marble. How they intertwine is on the center of this pretty, poignant booklet. while ten-year-old Zavion loses his domestic in storm Katrina, he and his father are compelled to escape to Baton Rouge. And while Henry, a ten-year-old boy in northern Vermont, tragically loses his ally, Wayne, he flees to ravaged New Orleans to aid with typhoon reduction efforts—and to go looking for a marble that used to be within the pocket of a couple of denims donated to the pink go.
wealthy with imagery and crackling with desire, this can be the unforgettable tale of the way lives attach in unforeseen, even magical, ways.
“In Smith’s poetic arms, this poignant tale barrels around the pages and into the reader’s middle, reminding us that magic can come up from the private tragedy.” —Kathi Appelt, Newbery Honor Award winner and two-time nationwide e-book Award Finalist
