Out of the Dust By: Karen Hesse

This book is write poetically. It is a quick read and allows you to see how life during that time could have been. When I read it the first time it was a great confidence booster to read a book this easily.

Out of the Dust

When Billie Jo is just fourteen she must endure heart-wrenching ordeals that no child should have to face. The quiet strength she displays while dealing with unspeakable loss is as surprising as it is inspiring.
Written in free verse, this award-winning story is set in the heart of the Great Depression. It chronicles Oklahoma's staggering dust storms, and the environmental--and emotional--turmoil they leave in their path. An unforgettable tribute to hope and inner strength.
