Kitty LeBlanc's flight from her abusive, alcoholic father is set in motion when she thinks she's killed a drunk pal of his who made advances; her journey to refuge at Aunt Lee's offers a ready-made framework to put together a story of personal growth [in Walk My Way]…. The story's offbeat journey situation and Kitty's hesitant groping for control gain clarity from the author's effortless style. The prose flows easily and satisfies with simple lines that nonetheless aptly characterize events. (pp. 1289-90)
