The author offers an inside look at the effects of Hurricane Katrina on the football team of a small private school in Louisiana. Author and narrator alike never let the story become melodramatic; instead they let the events of the day drive the book. As coaches and players seek stability and a return to normalcy on the field, Thompson's look at this microcosm shows how the storm affected many residents. David Drummond's narration remains as steady as a strong team driving downfield. It's directed, motivated, and balanced. Listeners will glean the history of the school and hear accounts of some games, but, more importantly, they will gain insights into the frustrations and coping mechanisms of those affected by the hurricane.
