I think this is a very good book, especially for feminists who have their fair share of wanderlust. It tries to do two things, be a personal travelogue as well as retelling of the creation of the Adventure Divas franchise, & that worked well, until almost the very end where it fell a bit flat.
And because feminism can be a tricky thing to define, I thought I'd share a quote that seems to convey Holly's feminist 'philosophy'. It comes from a conversation she has with her mother: 'Your generation was promised a decent husband & maybe a job on the side. Mine,' I said with some nostalgia & a hint of disappointment, 'mine was promised jet packs.'
