Eleventh-grade Melissa Woodruff writes, "Everything in life is a privilege, not a right. And I never believed that until I lost it all." This is one of the many reflections included in this collection of stories, poems and artwork from 91 survivors of Hurricane Katrina in gardes K-12 from the Biloxi, Mississippi, area. The author organized "Books for Biloxi" to help restock the Biloxi school libraries after the devastation, and a portion of the proceeds from the sales of this book are donated to Biloxi Public Schools.
