Acclaimed novelist Jewell Parker Rhodes is an American Book Award winner. Rhodes’ Ninth Ward is a stunning tale set against the horrors of Hurricane Katrina. Orphaned 12-year-old Lanesha lives with Mama Ya-Ya, the midwife who birthed her, in New Orleans’ Ninth Ward. Although Lanesha is different—able to see ghosts like that of her dead mother—she never feels unloved, an empowerment that helps her survive the devastating storm.

One of the best and emotional book I’ve read! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
This book is the best I’ve read so far on audible. This was the book I chose for my reading group only because my friend chose it. I am very surprised most books are not super interesting to me but this book was amazingly good. The ending I think was the best but don’t skip the other parts, it’s just my opinion. By the way, I am 10 so don’t think kids won’t like it.⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ 10 stars!
