In this stunning debut novel, two very different characters-a black boy who loses his home in Hurricane Katrina and a white boy in Vermont who loses his best friend in a tragic accident-come together to find healing. a 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. a Rich with imagery and crackling with hope, this is the unforgettable story of how lives connect in unexpected, even magical, ways. a oIn Smith's poetic hands, this poignant story barrels across the pages and into the reader's heart, reminding us that magic can arise from the deepest tragedy.o -Kathi Appelt, Newbery Honor Award winner and two-time National Book Award Finalist
