Kaitlyn Kashman’s Words of a Journey reminds me of who I was as a teen and who I still am today. Do we ever end the pursuit of all those things that caused us to wonder, care, yearn for? Kaitlyn’s unabashed honesty is refreshing, perhaps more so because it comes from someone who is just starting out in life. I will enjoy reading her work for years to come and watch her grow – and I will grow with her. Kaitlyn’s Words of a Journey is not poetry just for girls; most certainly teenage boys will join her in her quest and not fear asking these questions of themselves; they will also find hope in her honest, heartfelt words. Kaitlyn Kashman turns a phrase with the ease of someone who has been writing for many years in Words of a Journey, her first (and I stress first) book of poetry.”
