  • Booklist Reviews : Booklist Reviews 2019 June #1
    In San Juan, Alejo isn't bothered by a little rain, but as Hurricane Valerie rapidly becomes more dangerous, the area is evacuated of people. In New Orleans, Emily's sick brother is confined indoors, so she decides to embark on an adventure in his name—that is, until the storm reaches her, too. Anchored by these two points of view in different locations, the storm's increasing intensity is also presented from various other perspectives—including a climate researcher, a cameraman, and a petrel—showing just how much can change in the midst of a natural disaster. Alejo, missing his padrino, braves the oncoming storm, while Emily struggles with family issues revolving around her recovering brother, her mother paranoid about his health, and her father who's out on an oil rig. Set against the backdrop of suspense and fear in the face of nature's wrath, Courage (The Loudness, 2015) tells a storm-centered adventure, filled with action, danger, and life lessons, about two kids facing more than just a hurricane. Grades 4-7. Copyright 2019 Booklist Reviews.
