She wears her heart on her sleeve and it is as big as the country she writes about. Is she the quintessential American girl?

She zooms in on the detritus of love—the broken fragments, the fallen leaves—and puts together a collage that is as heartbreaking as it is beautiful. Watch out—she’s driving down your street.
