Review

As I stated at the top of this page "I was sent A Cup of Dust: a Novel of the Dust Bowl by Susie Finkbeiner for free in exchange only for a honest and unbiased review of A Cup of Dust: a Novel of the Dust Bowl by Susie Finkbeiner."

A Cup of Dust: a Novel of the Dust Bowl by Susie Finkbeiner begins with an acknowledgement, an author's note, and then Chapter Past ( Chapter 1). The book is unique in its design with how the top right corner is slightly curved with a ( mark on it at an angle.

A Cup of Dust: a Novel of the Dust Bowl by Susie Finkbeiner begins in Red River, Oklahoma in September 1934. Susie Finkbeiner has a good writing style that draws the reader in with her mater of a fact calming voice tone. I have to say that I personally really liked her writing style.

My favorite character in A Cup of Dust: a Novel of the Dust Bowl by Susie Finkbeiner was Pearl she had a sort of innocence about her that made her seem real and precious. I felt for her when she discovered the truth about her family and I could understand her anger. I respected her as a character for the way she dealt with her special needs sister Beanie even when Beanie would yell and hit her. I found it interesting how well Beanie was portrayed in A Cup of Dust: a Novel of the Dust Bowl by Susie Finkbeiner.

This was at some points a difficult book to read, but I am glad that I stuck it out and read it. The book truly helps to teach the reader about the dust bowl period. The fact that it is fiction makes it much more interesting to read. The book ends with a set of discussion questions for the reader. This would be a great book for a school reading project.
