The Hurricane Girls

Born in the wake of Hurricane Katrina, Greer, Joya Mia, and Kiki are seventh graders and the best of friends. After an accident leaves Greer's little sister paralyzed, Greer is forever changed by the experience and blames herself. Kiki and Joya Mia will do anything to help Greer let go of this emotional burden, and a plan is hatched to compete in a triathlon. Each girl will participate: Kiki will swim, Joya Mia will cycle, and Greer, if they can persuade her, will run — something she once loved to do.

It's been 12 years since the storm that has defined so much of their lives, and Katrina — and the events that came after — has left their mark on each of them. Can their friendship endure this less obvious storm? Set on the Westbank of New Orleans, this contemporary coming-of-age novel is a journey of growth, healing, and difficult transitions as the girls navigate their many life challenges: family trauma, body insecurity, and the conflict between ambitions and responsibilities. It's a powerful and enlightening exploration of how to surmount personal tragedy through friendship and forgiveness.

Description

"In alternating third-person perspectives, the girls realistically discover strengths and confront fears as they struggle to stay a team. Greer’s experience forms the core of the plot: Holt poignantly explores the accident’s impact on Greer and her parents, and Greer’s counseling sessions are particularly well depicted.... An uplifting portrait of friendship and healing." — Kirkus Reviews
