Out of the dust is about a girl named Billy Joe that lives a sorrowful life. She lived way back in the 1930’s and had many painful days in her life. Her father was a farmer and dust always layered his hard work, and her and her mother got burned by a bucket of kerosene. Billy Joe only got burned on her hands, just the spot where she plays her beloved piano. Her pregnant mother got burned all over, and died having her baby son.
I would recommend this book because, it shows the despondent life of the 1930’s. If you like books that show you how much you have, this book will be the right book for you!
Billy Joe is a disconsolate girl that has an incredible talent for playing the piano. She goes through the horrible pain of losing a loved one and burning her hands to bumps, but keeps the tears away from playing her moms piano.
