Whitney’s a passionate high school English teacher and one of the few extroverts in existence who would rather be at home reading right now. She spent her childhood in Bangladesh but now she lives in a big ol’ house in Auckland filled with flatmates, cups of tea, and mismatched couches
Reviews by Whitney Johanson:
Spending time with this book reminded me of sitting up late at night with my best friend as we pour out our lives to each other.
It's one of those films that feels like a gift – I loved every minute of it and the pleasant aftertaste of the experience stayed with me for days.
What could have been a depressing story about a pair of mopey teens was instead a touching, honest story about figuring out what’s worth living for.
The central romance is a spark of brilliant beauty and innocence within a complex, deeply wounded world.
As Lili awoke to the woman she knew she was, my heart was drawn in and wrung out like a tattered dishcloth.
