I really love Out of the dust.
Star: I really love the way the text is based. It is written in poetry.
Star: I really like how it is based around the dust bowl and the great depression. The main character Billie Jo and her family are very poor. Her father works while she plays the piano for a little money. Her mother does not work. At the beginning of the book her mother died giving birth to her son. This made Billie Jo and her father very sad. Her father had a hard time talking to Billie Jo about this but he finally overcomes this.
Wish:I really hope there is a sequel because I really want to know if she will continue to play the piano for “Arly’s band”
