It all started as one lazy webmaster's mistake, unfortunately the same mistake was copied by many other websites, and now there are about 50% of the websites claiming Rachel Leigh to be either Jennifer or Phoebe.

Phoebe has some resemblance to the actress. But Jennifer is definitely different from the two. Here is a comparison pic for your pleasure.

Quotes

  • [About her favorite book by John Green] For years I have been a loyal John Green fan- devouring his novels in the back of coffee shops, while traveling, and curled up on my couch. Something about the imagery of his books makes me get caught up in the fantasy of his stories, but "Turtles All the Way Down" hit closer to home for me than the rest.
  • [About "Turtles All the Way Down"] Never has a book been able to capture so well what it is like to live in the shadow of someone else’s legacy. [1]
  • Skiing and burgers, my kind of weekend
