I love to travel, the impermanence of where ‘home’ is, and having nothing, but fast food as an option for sustenance. So I loved this themed book by Ashly Kim. Three sisters are on the road, having left home, and Ashly uses the theme of family, as well as travel, and relationships.

‘oh, the shame

our mother wept

the entire sleepy town knew

the Greene girls had

run away,’

The Greene sisters are deftly shown to have different personalities, and the fun they have, such as in Dust, a poem written entirely in dialogue, as well as their relationships with one another.

‘and Madison read aloud

while Cassie painted

her nails,’

Wayward Daughters always hints at something darker, deeper, beneath the surface, alluding to abuse,

and the sense that when you return, if you return home, you will not be the same person that you were on the eve that you left.
