This book is very interesting, its very descriptive and fun to read. It is about this girl who lives in a town that is so dry that there is dust everywhere. It goes through parts of her life and describes how she feels and what she wants. She wants more then anything to get out of that town and go somewhere where dust isnt. There are some very good things that happen to her and some very bad and sad things. The words on the pages are big and there arent that many it is in more of a poem format then a book one so you dont really know how much you are reading. There are some boring parts too but in the interesting parts you get so into the book that you dont even relize how many pages you read. And the author does a good job of making you feel like you are in the story.
