Flashback Katrina 10 Years After
Join Kim on this fantastic exploration which she still feels was so real. This book delves into the scary and chilling details of that fateful day of August 29, 2005 when in a blink of Katrina's eye, her world and life as she knew it changed. Follow her 10 year quest for survival along a bumpy road struggling for some sense of stability. Kim's staying power makes her a survivor. Her sometimes irreverent but always refreshing look at a true life catastrophe is thought - provoking. Luckily, Kim never loses her sense of humor. What gives this book a shelf life much longer than 10 years is the fact that we are all victims of circumstance and we don't know the cards we are going to be dealt. We have to learn to deal with what we're thrown. Kim's view is a realistic look at weathering a storm and getting through it in a metamorphosis as a survivor.
