"Jennifer Franco Smith's "Star Walker" traverses the galaxy, reflecting on family, love, and identity in a series of twelve carefully-constructed poems. The collection truly sings in the imaginative midnight journey of "A Walk" in which the speaker-subject walks off a balcony and into the night sky, ice crystals crowning her head. "An Unfinished Afternoon" continues this imaginative relationship between self and environment, casting the very air as a lover. In these moments, Smith brings the readers closer to her own reverence for the natural world, turning the reader into a star walker, too. The collection is generally well paced and well edited."
