BY JEWELL PARKER RHODES
Twelve-year-old Lanesha lives in a tight-knit community in New Orleans' Ninth Ward. She doesn't have a fancy house like her uptown family or lots of friends like the other kids on her street. But what she does have is Mama Ya-Ya, her fiercely loving 82 year old caretaker, wise in the ways of the world and able to predict the future. With Katrina fast approaching, it's up to Lanesha to use her considerable hope and strengthto try and bring them and others through the storm.
