From the Publisher
Annotation Filled with magic, cruel realities, and down-to-earth characters, this is author Jewell Parker Rhodes's beautifully written first book for young adults. At 12, Lanesha has always lived in the Ninth Ward of New Orleans with Mama Ya-Ya, a midwife whose gifts extend to the ability to see the future. Born with a caul, Lanesha has the ability to communicate with ghosts, including her mother. When Mama Ya-Ya forsees a terrible hurricane coming, Lanesha must help and neighbors prepare for the worst.
Editors Note Twelve-year-old Lanesha lives in a tight-knit community in New Orleans' Ninth Ward. She doesn't have a fancy house like her uptown family or lots of friends like the other kids on her street. But what she does have is Mama Ya-Ya, her fiercely loving caretaker, wise in the ways of the world and able to predict the future. So when Mama Ya-Ya's visions show a powerful hurricane--Katrina--fast approaching, it's up to Lanesha to call upon the hope and strength Mama Ya-Ya has given her to help them both survive the storm.Ninth Ward is a deeply emotional story about transformation and a celebration of resilience, friendship, and family--as only love can define it.
