Publisher Description

In this Spanish-language edition of Hurricane, a young activist shares how he combated a public health emergency after Hurricane Maria.

In 2017, less than three weeks after Salvador Gómez-Colón’s fifteenth birthday, Puerto Rico was struck by a historic Category 4 hurricane. Residents were completely caught in the dark; news about Hurricane Maria broke only two days before it made landfall.

Salvador and his family fared better than most, but many in his community were left with destroyed homes and little access to basic resources. Unable to ignore this suffering, Salvador put his good fortune to good use, starting a fund-raising campaign that would bring solar-powered lamps and hand-powered washing machines to thousands of families in need.

This Spanish-language edition of Salvador’s propulsive first-person narrative brings a compelling story of determination, compassion, and hope to a wider audience.

“A harrowing tale of survival and an inspiring tale of altruism.”— School Library Journal, starred review
