Read full description of the books:
When I find an author I like, I try to read as many of his/her books as possible. Out of the Dust is one of my favorite Newbery award winning books. That book was set in the time period of the dust bowl and I was most impressed with Hesses' depiction of this historical event told from the perspective of a young girl.
Once again in Just Juice the author tells a tale of poverty through the eyes of a young girl struggling to hold the family together.
Juice and her family live in abject, hopeless, wretched poverty. The father is unable to hold a job; the mother relies way too heavily on Juice; the children lack food, clothing and security.
Worried about her father's sad moods, Juice refuses to go to school. In addition, she is weary of trying to learn letters and words that simply don't make sense to her. She cannot read and comprehension is almost impossible.
She learns the secret that her father cannot read when she discovers that their ramshackle home will be taken away because her father did not heed notices about delinquent back taxes.
Hesse understands poverty and the mind and soul numbing challenge of facing one more day of ridicule and despair. I liken her to an American version of Charles Dickens.
