Out of the Dust

Out of the DustOut of the Dust by Karen Hesse
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I am so impressed by authors that can convey depth of emotion and characterization in a book comprised of poems. Hesse's narrative arc is very well done and tells a powerful story of a teenager girl living in Oklahoma during the Dust Bowl. I can't believe it's taken me this long to read this book. I loved it. Wish I could give it 4 and a half stars.

Happy reading!
