Salvage the Bones
SALVAGE THE BONES is a 2011 National Book Award winner about a poor 15-year old Mississippi girl named Esch and her family as they await what would turn out to be the historically catastrophic Hurricane Katrina.
Esch is a truly fascinating character who escapes the realities of her everyday life by dreaming up imaginative scenarios of Greek mystical life to help her deal with the ho hum. More than anything, Salvage the Bones is the story of family–the good, the bad, the emotional and the hopeful as they face impending disaster and their experiences keep you enthralled, intrigued and never bored.
