Were you surprised by the ending of the story?  It was a mirale that Barry was reunited with his family!

Barry’s family now lives in NYC.  Do you think that he will ever go back to live in New Orleans?  Would you if you were in his shoes?

Do you think that Barry’s father made the right decision by going back home?  Should they have tried to leave the city?


Why do you think Barry’s grandfather left an ax in the attic? 


We stopped reading when Barry is in Abe’s floating house with Cruze.  How do you think the book is going to end?  Do you think Barry is going to get reunited with his family?  Make a prediction.

Chapter 1 was filled with a lot of action!  How did it make you feel?  Were you nervous as you read?


After we read chapter 1, we are taken back 21 hours in chapter 2.  The family is planning on leaving New Orleans.  Do you think they ever make it out?  Make a prediction on what you think might happen.
