A Word From The Author
I wrote this book as a dedication to my former self. I was lost in my own thoughts and delusions, comforting myself in the safety of bad habits and the satisfaction of compulsive desires. I felt unhappy, anxious, and overstimulated. This book chronicles my transformation from feeling disembodied and disempowered and illustrates how I shed layers of doubt and disconnection to find my way home in the world and inside my own body.
What Readers Are Saying
HALF WILD has 5-stars on Amazon
I LOVE this book! I read the last half in one day because I could to put it down, and have already bought another copy to give to a friend. Whitney writes with the nuance, wit, and authenticity of that rare bird who is both brilliant and relatable.
Whitney’s writing is incredible, amazing, and I can (and have) read it over and over. It’s the authenticity and vulnerability that makes it so good, and relatable even if everyone’s story of life is different. It’s a MUST read.
As someone who struggles with anxiety, perfectionism, and the concepts of home and identity, Whitney’s story is painfully familiar. Her prose is lush and evocative, making the resonant moments powerful enough to make you pause re-reading and share clips and phrases with friends and loved ones both.
