Synopsis: Fourteen-year-old Katelan Janke writes this exciting and harrowing tale of Grace Edwards and her family's struggle to survive the dangers and despair of the American Dust Bowl.

In fourteen-year-old Katelan Janke's first Dear America book, we meet Grace Edwards, a little girl growing up in the heart of the Texas panhandle, in the midst of the Dust Bowl. Fierce, dust-filled winds ravage the plains and threaten the town's agricultural livelihood, creating poverty and despair among Grace's neighbors. Will her family's farm survive?

From School Library Journal: Grade 4-8-Grace, 12, details the hardships she endures with her family and neighbors. She describes how they must scrub their house constantly, knead bread in a drawer, and breathe through damp handkerchiefs during a "duster." Even graver dangers abound: dust pneumonia, plagues of jackrabbits, and the loss of livelihood for farmers. Most compelling are the tiny joys that make life bearable: a baby jackrabbit, a dress lovingly created from a floral flour sack. An epilogue that provides a lively summary of the rest of their lives has more plot than most of this episodic novel. The winner of an Arrow Book Club/Dear America Student Writing Contest, the 15-year-old author interviewed several people who lived through the Dust Bowl. One small error appears in the notes: The Dust Bowl caused one of the United States's largest migrations, but at one million people, it is not the largest. As an example of what a teen can achieve when she explores her neighborhood and nations past, Survival succeeds. Karen Hesse's Out of the Dust (Scholastic, 1997) provides a more poetic view of this period. Combine those two books with Milton Meltzer's Driven from the Land (Benchmark, 2000), Jerry Stanley's Children of the Dust Bowl (Crown, 1992), Elizabeth Partridge's Restless Spirit (Viking, 1998), and William Durbin's The Journal of C. J. Jackson: A Dust Bowl Migrant (Scholastic, 2002) for a unit about one of the country's worst ecological disasters.
