Out Across the Nowhere by Amy Willoughby-Burle
This is a very short collection of very short stories. The characters are at times rough, but the language is beautiful. I especially liked “Missing Maya,” in which a girl who has a history of disappearing is eventually missed by her friends who then look for her. There’s a bit of sameness to the tone and voice here, so I don’t recommend reading the book in one sitting. Read a story and savor it, then come back later to read the next one.
