    Okay, I love this book for what it could be, not for what it was. The 12 to 13 year old kids I have read it with groaned.She does wonderful research. Has a great set of characters.The book just goes onAnd onAnd on.I thought at first if it was shorter I would have been able to "sell it" to my students better. When my daughter had it assigned as summer reading, we both decided the issue was being written in first person. He just got to feeling slow, drawling, and whiny.And I hate to say it. But my daughter has been hoping his four year old sister will die. I get that. I was a bit mad when (Spoiler alert) it felt like there was foreshadowing of her death when Katie was playing with the Vedders funeral stuff --- I kept thinking WHAT??? NONE of his siblings die? Are you kidding me?I can give it three stars because of her afterwards. My 13year old would give it one. I still argue, had it been in third person, this would have won NUMEROUS awards.

    I downloaded this book to read on the Kindle Fire, and on my computer for a realistic/fiction book for a college class. It was easy to read and I read it in a couple of days. It is for older children who are not going to get creeped out by some descriptions of dead bodies and what not, and it deals with death in a mature way, but not in a gory manner. It is based on actual events of the flood in Galveston, Texas back in the 1900's. This was my first knowledge of that disaster and this book intrigued me to look up more (although some research was for my class, some was for my own interest).The book is written from the view of a 16 year old boy, for what its worth. Some people didn't like the story line or whatever, but as an adult, I think this book would be good for a young teen or older child that likes to read and about realistic fiction.

    My 7th grade step son was asked to read the first ten chapters of this book over spring break for his Texas History class. In order to keep him motivated, I agreed to read it too and I am glad that I did.The book was very good. Knowing it was based on a true story, made it even better. I live near Galveston and have heard stories about the big flood all my life. The book made the stories come to life. It was a story of sadness, struggles and triumphs. Made me appreciate the little I have even more. Plus it actually sparked my step sons interest in Texas History. We read the whole book.......not just ten chapters. Finding out that the arthur lives in Rockport was pretty neat too! My parents live there and I visit often. Maybe I'll meet her one day.

    This was very interesting and has a few pictures that were around at the time. This is the true story of the 1901 hurricane that hit Galveston. TX. killing over 6,000 people..If you have heard about this incident/catastrophe it is well worth the purchase.....I bought/downloaded it for my Kindle Fire... I would recommend it to anyone.

    We ordered this for my kindle app for my daughter to use on homework. She got what she needed but the page numbers on the kindle app don't correspond with the page numbers on the paper book.

    Nice read. I was concerned that the book wouldn't be appropriate formy 9 year old son because the protagonists was 16 years old. However it was a compelling story,that was nicely crafted.
