There are a few typos and grammatical errors, not enough to worry over even if, like me, you're obsessed with them. Ms Whitten asks for comments on the story; here are three: find a thesaurus and look up "huff." Replace every instance in the story save one with one of the alternatives. Really. At the point in the story it happens, I was so disappointed in Sandy at the water tower. I did get over it and then, of course I remembered, "She does not get eaten by the sharks at this time." Still... And the ultimate fight scene, I thought it went by too quickly. There was a big build-up, then it was over. Might just be me.
Obviously, even the slow beginning hasn't diminished my enjoyment of Sandy Morrison. While sensuality is present (as it must be, given the characters), it isn't ever in your face. Sandy holds her character throughout, and the changes others go through are all believable, making the story enjoyable. The events of the story, while fantastical on their face, all fit into the plot Ms Whitten has woven.
I am comfortable recommending Sandy Morrison and the Pack of Pussies to anyone looking for a stimulating read. Next story, Ms Whitten?
Sandy is thrilled when she gets invited to cheerleader Trisha's graduation party, because people don't usually invite the "she" who used to be a "he" anywhere. But when the cheerleaders play a cruel prank on Sandy, she gets upset and jumps off the water tower - and then catches herself in mid-air. Turns out that Sandy is a witch, which is unfortunate because her best friend Maggie is a werecat, and the two species have been at war for as long as anyone can remember. Like, kill on sight kind of war. So if Sandy and her friends want to keep her alive, they have to move fast.
In a genre of cookie-cutter Bella-esque heroines, Sandy Morrison stands out as unique. I confess that I don't know a lot about transgender people, so it was cool to read from the perspectives of someone going through the transition and the people around her. But I think in a book like this it would be easy to make Sandy's being transgender the only interesting thing about her, and I really like how that is not the case. Sandy is brave and determined but also forgiving of people. She likes to go to parties and dance and have fun. And she owns a Star Trek uniform from every series.
I think one of the big themes of the book is that no one is "just" anyone. Kyle is a former druggie/sex addict who has reformed his life and was studying to be a computer programmer. Maggie defies cheerleader stereotypes but still loves being on the squad. And Trisha learns that she could be more than just a shallow rich girl.
I'm actually sitting here thinking about the great themes in this book, and it's making me cry a little.Read more ›
