Out of the Dust by Karen Hesse
This gripping story, written in first-person free-verse poems, is the compelling tale of Billie Jo's struggle to survive during the dust bowl years of the Great Depression. With stoic courage, she learns to cope with the loss of her mother and her grieving father's slow deterioration. There is hope at the end when Billie Jo's badly burned hands are healed, and she is able to play her beloved piano again.
This historical fiction book rightfully won the prestigious Newbery Medal for excellence in children's literature. It's a fantastic example of books in prose.
