& Taylor

When her family is evacuated due to a pending flood, a young girl leaves her cat behind with the idea that she will return shortly, yet as the days turn into weeks, the girl worries terribly for her cherished feline friend.
A collection of poems shares a family's experiences and renewed appreciation for home and community after they are evacuated during a spring flood and then return to survey the damage.

Simon and Schuster
This winter was snowy, this spring brought a terrible blizzard, and now
the river is rising.
Sandbags don't stop it, the dikes don't stop it, and late one night sirens warn everyone to evacuate. A girl and her family don't expect to be gone more than a couple of days, so they leave their cat and race for shelter with only a suitcase each. But as days stretch into weeks they worry: Is the cat safe? Will they have a home to return to? And how will their lives be changed?
In searing, personal poems, Jane Kurtz explores what it's like to struggle through a flood and pull your life together afterward. Inspired by Kurtz's own flood experience, this tale is realistic and unforgettable. Not just a moving story of one girl's courage, River Friendly, River Wild is a tribute to everyone who's ever faced great loss.
