""Hurricane Season" is a powerful book about who we are, and who we each strive to be. The story of Coach J.T. Curtis and his football team, it is also the song sung by real people succeeding to complete the mission each has been called to, often against seemingly impossible odds. I think this is a beautiful read for parents of both boys and girls, and I believe it's an especially powerful book for parents, mentors, and teachers of boys and young men." -- Michael Gurian, Author of "The Wonder of Boys" and "The Wonder of Girls"
"The concept of 'overcoming adversity' is certainly nothing new in the world of sports. Here, though, we see a truly extraordinary example of boys and men facing raw trauma and striking back with both passion and purpose." -- Jeffrey Marx, author of "A Season of Life"
"A rousing, well-told tale that is poignant and inspirational. With grace and beauty, Neal Thompson shows us that the human spirit cannot be conquered, even in the ashes of Katrina." -- Buzz Bissinger, author of "Friday Night Lights"
