Out Of The Dust

Out Of The Dust

Karen Hesse


This gripping tale, written in sparse first-person, free-verse poems, is the compelling story of Billie Jo's fight to outlive in the course of the airborne dirt and dust bowl years of the melancholy. With stoic braveness, she learns to deal with the lack of her mom and her grieving father's gradual deterioration. there's desire on the finish whilst Billie Jo's badly burned palms are healed, and she or he is ready to play her cherished piano back. The 1998 Newbery Medal winner.
