Recommendation-
I recommend this book to anyone that's 13 years old and up because the first part of the story is emotional. Billy's mom died. "Ma died that day giving birth to my brother." Billy's mom died because of the fire in which she was burned badly. This is why I recommend this book to older kids. I like this book because when people that are close to you pass away it shows how you can get on with your live. "I was invited to graduation, to play the piano." This citation shows that people start to think that Billy is normal, and she can play the piano again.

I read Out of The Dust when i was probably 11, and i LOVED it! For me, i love stories with a lot of drama and stories that make me cry. Some people don't like that feeling when reading a book. like i said though, i like it. As well as tears, there were also some laughs. it's a quick read and deffinately a good one!

I think the book was good. It made me think about how tough it was living through dust storms and living without a mom and without a little brother. Living without a mom that teaches you piano lessons and having those lessons dissappear when she dies is really hard. So she's trying to move on and regain those lessons and memories.

The theme of this book is death. You meet someone, you like them, they either die or move to California. Sorry I ruined all the book talks about. This is the kind of book that kids hate, and yet teachers think they love. It is really depressing when everyone dies.

The book called out of the dust is a great book! I loved how she explained what the land looked like and how the people relate to the weather when there were major dust storms. It was fun to learn about how a family interacted then and the dust. The girl did a great job explaining her life in detail but not making it to detailed to where it got very boring.

I thought that it was a very interesting book(in a good way), and I liked the way it was written -in free verse-, I have not ever seen that before. It was also very educational and I learned a lot about that time period and the Dust Bowl. For instance, I had no idea that the dust was in their food, and beds, and drinks, and mouths, or even in the buildings. Another thing was that this book, unlike many other historical-fiction books, was that it was not boring, it kept hold of my intrest constantly. Over all, I enjoyed this book, and I'm not just saying this, I mean it, I liked this book and would recommend it to anybody who needed a good one to read.(I only gave it 4 stars because nothing is perfect)

I was a good book in which exposed you to the harsh reality of the dust how often people died and how hard it was to keep on to hope even through severe hardships. I give it a 4 out of 5

This book really opened my eyes. I had no idea how difficult it was to live in the Dust Bowl during the Great Deppression. The way the book was written in free verse poetry helped convey the book's powerful message. I loved the way the book ended. It left you feeling hopeful that Billie Jo's life would turn around and become joyful again.
