“Picture a girl with scars that don’t show. She’s on a highway hitchhiking. She’s wearing a USC varsity sweater she got cheap at a thrift shop. She’s carrying a battered suitcase, not much inside. The girl has seen every kinda thing but she’s not broken. She will give you a chance, but don’t cross her. This is the protagonist I pictured when I read Wendy Rainey’s extraordinary new chapbook, Girl On The Highway. The poems will break your heart, then educate and inspire you. She will enchant you, too. Buy this book.” ~Suzanne O’Connell, author of What Luck; Buy now.
