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:
It celebrates the anticipation, the character growth, the secret make-out sessions of romance AND it is incredibly positive and affirming of women.

Polly is often funny, sometimes courageous, and gets her ass handed to her frequently enough for me to love her despite her flaws.
When told she should get her lady parts out of sci-fi, she says, “The best response is to continue writing bestsellers and do your thing.”
It was totally unlike any other movie I’ve seen. It was panic inducing but I still enjoyed the ride.
Listening to Geena Davis, I realized that many of us grow up feeling that we somehow take up too much space in the world.
