sights on. Meanwhile, she lives in downtown San Diego with her best friend, Sheila, who's just returned from a post-college vacation back east with a "cosmopolitan aunt."
Only Sheila has changed. She's come back with a new attitude and seems to be "moving in on" the guys Mandy has her eye on, like she's in competition with her.
Or is Mandy just imagining things?
THE SHE CODE is good-time romp that took me back to that special time in life when I was in my early twenties. The San Diego setting was evocative, and I loved the way the art work was integrated into the story.
The She Code mirrors the lives of wild wolves and the world is full of them. Just like when you were in school, work has their groups. Well, working for a company that publishes comics, you have your "all-male artist" (of course,) number crunchers, and female admin. Mandy is a receptionist. "Witness an art degree in action." "Women are still a minority in this industry, since comics have a rep for catering to boys and their toys." (19) So relatable!
You can't help but adore Mandy. She's quirky, funny, smart, and imaginative, but she's also shy, especially when it comes to boys. She's like a child whose idea of fun is watching TV in her jammies or playing video games. Too cool! But, just like the rest of us, she has fears and doubts. "Once I put the professional blue pencil to paper, I'd have to face the questions: What if I wasn't good enough? What if I couldn't get beyond run-of-the-mill and into something better?" (63) Ah, the struggle of an artist is all too real.
I also loved the comics in the book. I especially liked that her comic book character, Luka, inspired her to be brave. "Mandy Halsey, head in the clouds, stuck on so much fantasy in her life because reality killed." (175)
This is an engaging tribute to girl power! Witty, endearing, and inspires you to "do what you wanna do."
Many abides by it unlike her best friend Sheila, who seems to go after every
man that Mandy is interested in. Surely she's imagining it, right? Must read
