"Out of the Dust" by Karen Hesse 4.5 stars (out of 5)
It's always around this age when my boys come to me with a book they just know I'll love. This one was recommended by G, he really loved it and asked me to read it too!
The story is of a 14 year old girl, living in Oklahoma, during the dust bowl and the great depression. About her struggles, her family, her adventures and her life in the dust.
My boys have never led me wrong.
