Ramon de Ocampo narrates this compassionate story of destruction and hope in Puerto Rico. Shortly after Salvador Gómez-Colón turned 15 in 2017, his home was devastated by Hurricane Maria. In the aftermath, he saw two pressing needs of his neighbors: light and clean clothes. He started to raise money to provide solar lamps and hand-operated washers. During the hurricane, de Ocampo matches the emotional intensity and vulnerability in Gómez-Colón's words, tempered just enough to keep the story appropriate for middle-grade listeners. De Ocampo doesn't try to sound young, and his straightforward narration is respectful of Gómez-Colón's powerful story. Narrator Qarie Marshall delivers an introduction to the I, Witness series and a conclusion with historical data and a list of ways to help.
