Out Of The Dust

Book Type: Paperback

Helpful Score: 2

What a gem! As an adult sometimes I forget there are treasures to be found in children's books as well. The prose of this novel is a voice I will carry for a long time. From the first page I was drawn in with Billie Jo to travel the dusty roads of her adolesence. This is an amazing book and well worth all the awards it was given.
