Plenty Enough Suck to Go Around by Cheryl Wagner

This book is a memoir of the rebuilding of New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina. It was really interesting and gave such insight into the people and lifestyle that existed before the hurricane. The author was fortunate to be a free-lance worker so she and her partner were able to dedicate the time it took to rebuild their home. There are numerous heart-breaking stories interspersed with the details of dealing with mold, the influx of drug dealers and the trash left behind by the flood. Fascinating read.

I spend my honeymoon in New Orleans in the French Quarter and I look forward to going back one day. I wonder if I, as an outsider, will notice a difference?
