I really enjoyed reading this delightful tale of a young woman from a small town, who isn't afraid to do the right thing. The writing is clever, and the novel is extremely clean. I highly recommend it!
Megan McCoy is a bundle of contradictions: small and perky, yet bold and unflappable; compassionate and service-oriented, yet self-focused and driven; independent, yet drawn to the companionship of one particular somebody. Megan is a new kind of feminist heroine. She sees herself as an actualized person, with strengths and abilities independent of a Mr. Right. This is not a romantic comedy, though it often features some of the comedy and breeziness of some of the better romcoms. It even features the quirky, over-the-top roommate character, an aspiring Broadway star who makes Rachel from "Glee" look downright stoic by comparison.
But Megan's feminism preserves a dignified, values-based actualization that allows her to hold her head high without looking down her nose. How refreshing it is to see a protagonist who prays, attends church, and refers unironically to writing in her journal every day. She is humble enough to allow her hometeacher (assigned home visitor in the LDS church) to carry her down the six flights of stairs in her apartment building after she sprains her ankle, but confident enough to give some drunk and disorderly boys a well deserved admonition, helping a fellow traveler along the way.
The storylines in Sister WhoDat have the unique trait of coming together perfectly, karmically, while being completely believable. Thankfully, as the book cover suggests, this will not be the last we see of Megan McCoy. The narrative of this first book was solid, and the writing was enjoyable throughout.
