Eight year old Allie Henderson returns home from school early to find a note from her mother saying she has taken Allie’s brother to the hospital for safety and will return to pick up Allie soon. Allie hears a roaring sound and goes to the front door and opens it, only to be caught up in the flood waters which have resulted from days of rain. Allie is initially terrified until she remembers to use her grandfather’s practical principles to help guide her through to safety. Then she meet Tula, a blind African-American woman who is alone and lost and in need of assistance. Together Allie and Tula make their way to Tula’s house where Allie’s nightmare threatens her very survival.


Allie is a really unique and special little girl, and she ends up being a hero because she rescues a blind elderly woman during a flood. And she also rescues the body of a baby. I really adore Allie, because instead of being scared and doing nothing when she sees all of the water, she does what she can to help others. And the unique thing that Allie does is that she encourages her friends and those in her school to stand strong when problems come our way, and always be willing to lend a hand to everyone in need.

Wow! We need more Allie’s in our world today. And I really love that Dr. Karen Pirnot  so professionally writes a story such as this one to encourage the younger generations how to face difficult situations they will sure face in life. The Above All Others Principle book is a book that should be read by every student that has problems dealing with life. They will sure be encouraged and find answers that will better their situation.
