A Storm in the Barn (YA)
This was a graphic novel about the Dust Bowl. I wish it had more text--there wasn't much of a written storyline to it. Jack wants to do something to make himself useful but he cannot find a way until he finds the rainmaker in the barn--then he feels he can bring the rain back. This book showed the desperation felt during that time period and showed illness etc from it but I do not think it did so as effectively as say, the book Out of the Dust. I borrowed this book from the library and it was on the book list for the historical fiction month of my YA literature class.
