The Size of Texas - Kate Finegan - Fine Press
"My teacher brain was ticking that morning, growing ever more uncomfortable with what I'd agreed to do and all the miles it would take to do it."
Some teachers will go to literal lengths to help their students. This one drives across Texas, battling tornadoes and her own anxiety for a student who feels they have nowhere else to turn. Kate Finegan presents acts of extreme empathy and generosity in a way that makes them seem like something that any woman would do for any other woman.
