Publisher Description:

Celeste Saves the City pulls readers into the life of a young girl forced to leave her beloved home as Hurricane Katrina threatens to flood New Orleans. Determined to make a difference in the future, she sets her sights on becoming a civil engineer and Celeste figures out how to protect the wetlands that slow down flood waters during bad storms and hurricanes.

Introducing readers to civil engineering while paying homage to the "Big Easy", this semi-autobiographical tale encourages children from diverse backgrounds to pursue careers in STEM and elevates the need for continued efforts to protect coastal cities from the impact of catastrophic weather events.
