Out of the Dust
A young girl (named Billie Joe I think) living in the dust bowl during the Great depression loves playing piano like her mother taught her to. But then a terrible accident not only leaves he motherless, it also impares her piano playing. The book is written in free verse and the author utilizes that to show emotion.Source(s): I've read it
