“Something Wild” is a deceptively easy read of a gut-wrenching story told from the rotating perspective of two sisters and their mother. Tanya and Nessa share a traumatic childhood experience, the details of which are revealed through flashbacks and present moments over a weekend as they return home to help their mom, Lorraine, move out of the family house. Debut author Hanna Halperin, a 2015 University of Wisconsin–Madison MFA graduate, deftly demonstrates how differently siblings can be shaped by the same experience; how we hold ourselves responsible for other people’s behavior, the generational impact of trauma, and how helpless we

Naperville resident Daniela Kaleskova was falling asleep in her home on Nutmeg Lane when she was startled awake by an alert on her phone.

The word “tornado” appeared to jump off the screen as her son ran into her room, asking what they should do. They made it to the basement just in time before the brunt of the storm hit.

When they came upstairs a while later, they noticed broken windows on their house and damage to their car, which was sitting in the driveway. But when Kaleskova saw her neighbor’s house — the roof ripped off, the upstairs
