A young woman on her way to college travels by bus from her small town to a home for the mentally disabled on her way to college, burning bridges as she goes.

This feels a little like a Eudora Welty or Flannery O’Connor story, with its broadly drawn Southern Gothic characters and moral ambiguity. The main character’s ruthlessness is both admirable and stunning; I think she’ll succeed. Groff definitely writes some interesting and challenging stories.
