The author has written adult fiction; this is her first foray in the land of children's and YA literature. This is a compelling story of a young girl for whom life has been difficult. Lanesha lives with someone who is not a relative; she has the sight. This makes her the butt of every bully at school. However, Lanesha learns to accept who she is just in time to use her skills to survive the flood that eradicated much of New Orleans when the levees broke.
