{Hurricane Katrina Rescue: Kate Messner}

{Synopsis} – Ranger, the time-traveling golden retriever with search-and-rescue training, sets out to help a family in New Orleans during Hurricane Katrina!
Ranger, the time-traveling golden retriever with search-and-rescue training, arrives in New Orleans as Hurricane Katrina approaches and residents start to evacuate the city. Ranger meets Clare Porter, who is searching for her grandmother. Once Ranger helps Clare find Nana, he takes shelter with them at their home in the Lower Ninth Ward, and they wait for Clare’s father to return from the gas station. But there’s no sign of him as hours pass and the weather gets worse. The wind picks up and rain pours down. And when the levees break, floodwaters dangerously rise, and Clare and Nana are separated. Can Ranger help Clare navigate the flooded streets to safety and back to her family?

{My thoughts} – Clare is a sweet girl that is living in New Orleans. At the time hurricane Katrina hits her mother and brother are in Houston. Her father, her Nana and herself or still home. Her father talks with her mother nightly and when the mayor calls for a mandatory evacuation her father goes out in search of gas so they can head to Houston.

He gives Clare specific instruction to pack a bag and get her Nana ready. She goes about doing that while her father is gone. She ends up having to do much more because her father doesn’t make it back. She is however, greeted with Ranger who starts to look out for her and her Nana.

There are many situations in which she could have been hurt. However, Ranger keeps her safe and helps to guide her in the right directions. A lot takes place in the span of a day or two and with Ranger by her side Clare is able to handle things at a much more adult level.

It did make me sad to read about all the stuff she’d went through. However, in the end it helped her to get where she was going and showed her tremendous amount of strength in a time of crisis.

I look forward to reading more books in this series in the future.

Final Conclusion: 5 Star Rating.
