The Heart is Not a Size is a quick read, but one that is filled with amazing imagery and prose. It is something that I am constantly impressed with by Beth Kephart, how she can capture so much beauty in her writing with just a handful of simple words.

The story follows two best friends, Georgia and Riley, as they travel to Anapra with a group of fellow students and chaperone's to help build a bathroom for the small squatter village. While there, their friendship is tested as a result of keeping too many secrets. Beth Kephart says it best in her Acknowledgments, "we need truth tellers as our friends."
