In this gut-wrenching story written in a free-verse, you will find a twelve year old girl to be such an observant and brave being that you will root for her from the beginning to the end. Her thoughts and her insights are so well developed and poignant that you will know she will be fine no matter what happens to her. She will be able to crawl out of the dust with grace and dignity in a very poetic way. OUT OF THE DUST by KAREN HESSE is a Newbery award winning novel that should go on your must-read list.

For grades four and up!
