GoodReads • Amazon • ISBN13: 9780553511932 • ★★★☆☆

A hurricane, a tragic death, two boys, one marble. How they intertwine is at the heart of this beautiful, poignant book.

When ten-year-old Zavion loses his home in Hurricane Katrina, he and his father are forced to flee to Baton Rouge. And when Henry, a ten-year-old boy in northern Vermont, tragically loses his best friend, Wayne, he flees to ravaged New Orleans to help with hurricane relief efforts—and to search for a marble that was in the pocket of a pair of jeans donated to the Red Cross.

Rich with imagery and crackling with hope, this is the unforgettable story of how lives connect in unexpected, even magical, ways.
