If an unprecedented Category 6 hurricane were to obliterate South Florida, what would happen to its tens of thousands of displaced residents? Austenne Grey narrates this provocative novel, which recounts the ensuing social upheaval. Grey's narration is most appealing as the voice of Daphne, a wealthy mom whose world is shattered when, without money or credit cards, she leads her kids to a government mass shelter in Oklahoma. As the vast tent city develops its own microcosm of society, Grey portrays the well-intentioned FEMA manager and a shady insurance salesman. Grey presents a sufficient performance, providing only modest characterizations that don't help the listener follow the more complicated scenes. This unsettling story of devastation due to global warming would do well on the screen. N.M.C. © AudioFile 2022, Portland, Maine [Published: SEPTEMBER 2022]
