Reviews - What do our customers think?
One of my favorites.  May 14, 2008
The first time I read this book was in fourth grade, and it has been a favorite ever since. Like previously stated, it is not the most uplifting of stories, but you can't expect everything to be pleasant and delightful all the time. I honestly would reccommend this to someone of any age to read atleast once.
Out of the Dust  May 11, 2008
I read this book for the first time this year and wondered why I didn't have to read it in when I was in school. The main character Billi Jo has to over come a lot and does a wonderful job of it. This could teach so much to young readers. I strongly believe that this book be in the schools as a required read.
Don't let this book collect dust!  May 11, 2008
Out of Dust is a book every young reader in American needs to read. Written in poetry form, Karen Hesse's book reveals the year long evolution of fourteen year old Billie Jo. Set in Oklahoma's Dust Bowl during the Great Depression, the story exposes the raw emotions of a young girl as she struggles to survive the most haunting experience of her life. This story will help experienced young readers, ages 11-13, understand the complexity of life for children their own age during a historical era of our Nation's history. Whereas most recollections of the Great Depression are depicted through adult views, Out of Dust is told through the eyes of Billie Jo which will allow children to make a connection between the issues of the time and the ones they are dealing with today. This beautifully written book is an excellent introduction to the Great Depression and offers multiple opportunities for exploration of the era.
Not exactly uplifting, but certainly an important novel  May 10, 2008
This is one of the most powerful books written in quite some time for kids. It is not a happy book, but it holds so much hope, necessary for a piece written about the Great Depression, namely about those people stuck out in the Dust Bowl. The story is not written traditionally, but through a series of poems and journal entries hat take us through a section of life of a young girl and the personal tragedies and joys she experiences. I guarantee, it is a tissue book--while it's too depressing for me, the kind that prefers something cheerful, many should appreciate the rough heart that the story puts out.
Fantastic!  Apr 16, 2008
I read this book for a child lit class. Normally I am not a fan of historical American fiction, especially if it has to do with the west. This book was different. It made no mention of Native American mythology, cowboys or other common themes in books related to this genre. The characters and situations are not far fetched and any adult or child reading this can easily relate to the main characters. I think teachers should be make this required reading, rather than teaching John Steinbeck who often alienates teen readers.
