A Day in August
by Reis Armstrong. Edition Date:: 10/15/2015
During August of 2005 when word first spread across New Orleans about Hurricane Katrina, no one took it seriously. As the storm swept closer, 17-year-old Louis Devereux is forced to stay behind with his family, while his girlfriend, Monroe Le Blanc, evacuates the city with her parents. After the storm settles and months pass without any contact, Louis goes on a mission to find her by any means necessary. Meanwhile, Monroe has already moved on and accepted the fact that he’s dead. But if Louis has anything to do with it, not a human or hurricane will keep them apart.
