Book Overview

Armani Curtis can think about only one thing: her tenth birthday. She's having a party, her mama is making a big cake, and she has a good feeling about a certain wrapped box. Turning ten years old is a big deal to Armani. It means she's older, wiser, more responsible. But when Hurricane Katrina hits the Lower Nines of New Orleans and tears her world apart, Armani realizes that being ten means being brave, watching loved ones die, and mustering all her strength to help her family weather the storm. A gripping story of courage and survival, Upside Down in the Middle of Nowhere celebrates the power of hope and love in the face of the unthinkable.

   A story that will capture your heart!
I finished reading this book in two nights, although it was incredibly difficult to put down the first night! Armani thanked me for introducing her family and friends to you. My heart cried, smiled and smiled again. What a beautiful book, written by a wonderful author. I highly recommend '' this book.
   Lovely emotional ride!
This was a really beautiful story told from the perspective of a 10-year-old girl. This is not an immature view point. The tragedy of Katrina is told in such a way that the reader will fall personally connected to the tragic events. Adults as well as young adults will be able to relate to the characters that are so well developed. My favorite relationship was with Armani and Memaw. There is no lovelier relationship than that of a child and her grandmother. I highly recommend this book and look forward to the author's next tale!
   important, tender Hurricane Katrina story
Armani can barely wait to turn ten. She does not want anyone to interfere with the birthday party that she has been anticipating, not even the fact that her neighbors decided to evacuate Lower Ninth for an approaching storm. But when the hurricane hits Armani's tight-knit world is turned upside-down. Ten '' is not what she expected. Embarked on her roof-top, Armani uses every ounce of strength she learned from her family to survive and reunite with those she loves. This is an important story that is told tenderly. The 4th Grade and Up :
   Well done..
Offers a 9-11 first person account of the memorable experience in the hours before and after the hurricane Katrina.
   Powerful Read
It is very well written and powerful. This book shows the real fear and tragedy of the Katrina hurricane and the days that followed. I read this along with my niece for her school project, and was very interested in story and characters at the age of 11.
   So real
The author has done a brilliant job of capturing the hurricane Katrina and her frightening aftermath. The descriptions are so good that you can almost smell the putrid water. I heard several Katrina stories first hand and this fits with everything I heard.
   Great story
My 10 year old and I read it both thoroughly and enjoyed it. It is well written and put down. I found it to be very sad at times, so maybe not for overly sensitive kids or kids going through struggles in real life. Overall, I would highly recommend this book.
   Sad but true
I have cried most of the way through it. We live close to the coast and get our share of the hurricanes. A few weeks after the hurricane Katrina struck New Orleans, the hurricane Rita came through my home town. It brought back memories of the time for me and illuminated the plight that those had to live through in Katrina. It was quite sad, but the author wove the story well together. She made you feel like you were really seeing things in New Orleans through the eyes of a ten year old.
   young reader book
This is really a chapter book for children. Texas seems to match the stories about the hurricane refuges in Did.
