Out of the Dust by Karen Hesse, 227 pgs.

I read the book Out of the Dust by Karen Hesse.  I finished this book on June 5, 2011.  This book is about a girl named Billie Jo and her troubles in life. 

What I liked about this book is that it's all poetry.  It gives the story a beat and it makes you slow down and think about the story.  When she is playing piano, the word seem to flow on the page and when the author wants something to stand out she puts it on it's own stanza.  I think that it is a really cool way to write especially when all the different poems together make a story. 

I liked the book Out of the Dust by Karen Hesse.  Its sad in some parts but its a really good book.  I would recommend this  book to others.
