Dust Girl- review by Ms Metcalfe
Dust Girl is an urban fantasy novel, set in the 1930s American Dust Bowl. The Dust Bowl was a huge human-made ecological disaster, caused by poor crop management and lack of soil conservation. Basically, the once productive fields of Kansas, Oklahoma and other states turned to dust and the topsoil blew away.
In this setting we have Callie, living in a hotel with her (crazy) mother, waiting for the father she has never met to return. The dust storms are killing her and her mother won't leave...until she unleashes her magic.
Would recomend this, I read it in one day. I look forward to reading the next two in the series.
