    STOP! THIS IS A LIFE OR DEATH EMERGENCY! PLEASE READ THE FOLLOWING MESSAGE! Okay, now that I have your attention and you know this is serious business, I just read a spectacular book that blew my mind! Interested now? I thought so! Out of the Dust by Karen Hesse is one of the most deep and thought out books I've ever read; very emotional. This book is not a regular for most people, it wasn't my first choice either. It's genre is historical fiction. Believe it or not my little brother recommended it to me and I'd have to give it five stars! I really enjoyed this book and can gladly see myself and other readers looking to read more books like it and/or by the same author. This book is based on a true story. Hesse writes Out of the Dust in first person, allowing Billie Jo Kelby, the protagonist, or main character, to describe her life from the winter of 1934 thought the fall of 1935. Billie Jo describes her desolate internal and external landscape with a searing, brutal honesty. She narrates, in unfolding glimpses of story, a tale of death, destruction, dust, and the search for redemption. This incredible book is very much related to Come on Rain, by Karen Hasse! Karen Hasse didn't actually write Out of the Dust until three years after her trip to Colorado, when she'd already started writing Come on Rain. I'd recommend this book to girls and boys, anyone interested in historic fiction! To conclude, if you haven't already done so, read Out of the Dust by Karen Hesse, you won't regret it!
