Living in a snow globe

When we last heard from ‘Hurricane Journal’ writer Samantha Perez, she recounted the unforgettable story of her first journey back to her flood-ravaged home in St. Bernard Parish, Louisiana. Now in three new entries, Perez, 17, brings readers up to date.
“Katrina has fallen from the news,” Perez observes. “My story isn’t finished, but the media thinks it is.”
Cramped in a tiny trailer in a town that will never seem like home … fighting with her parents … missing her friends … the riveting story continues, making painfully clear the lasting disruption of a monster hurricane.
