Out of the Dust by Karen Hesse*****
Out of the Dust. It's poetry, good poetry. It is a bit messed up at times, but it stays pretty true to what actually happened during The Great Depression. I think that this book didn't feel like poetry, but is still poetry. I actually had to read this book for school (a poetry unit), but I really enjoyed it. I think that middle school students would like this book.
