Tara Smith at Two Writing Teachers wrote a review of Katherine Bomer's The Journey is Everything:

Mention the word “essay” to any student in my middle school, and they will have this response: their eyes will glaze over, they will sigh, and their shoulders will slump. Mention the word “essay” to any English teacher in my middle school, and (most likely) they will have the same response, too. For students and teachers alike, learning the essay and teaching the essay are greeted with equal doses of dread and dreariness: the essay, it seems, however critical and necessary to our curriculum, is something we must grit our teeth and get through.
