Dust bowl

i had to read this for a class book becuase we were learning about the dust bowl. usually class books are so horrible that when the teacher announces it you already dread the time up to actually reading it but with this book it was such an easy read but also put you into perspective of the girl

Good book

I read this back in elementary school. It was a really good book and reminded me of those other books about Native Americans being conqeured by the English or whatever.
