About This Book
The amazing story of one town’s real-world effort to build back better!
In 2007, a tornado destroyed Greensburg, Kansas, and the residents were at a loss as to what to do next—they didn't want to rebuild if their small town would just be destroyed in another storm. So they decided they wouldn't just rebuild the same old thing; this time, they would build a town that could not only survive another storm, but one that was built in an environmentally sustainable way. Told from the point of view of a child whose family needed to rebuilt after the storm, this is the inspiring addition to the author’s acclaimed series about actual everyday communities going green includes plenty of rebuilding scenes and details for construction lovers, too!
