game, after a gamer specifically looking for girls to play as female characters visits her school Immediately adept at the game, Anda meets a player who tells her she can make money by killing characters farming for gold These farmers sell gold to players, allowing them to essentially cheat at the game by quickly buying items they have not earned Anda meets Raymond, a Chinese teen who works as a gold farmer She learns about his real lifehe works long days and has no health coverage She encourages him to demand health care or strike, a choice that ends up having real world ramifications The narrative toggles between the in game story and real life The illustrations of the game are vibrant and dynamic, contrasting well with the muted browns and drab greens of Anda s reality A detailed introduction by Doctorow about games, economics, politics, and activism serves to ensure readers get the story The author attempts to tackle these large issues and others like gender and privilege but only does so superficially The writing can feel heavy handed, with the message overpowering Anda s voice The problematic notion of a white character speaking for and trying to save minority characters that all look identical is addressed, but the too tidy ending makes that issue, and many others, feel oversimplified The subject matter will have a built in audience, and the appealing artwork will move this off the shelves, but readers may ultimately find the story unsatisfying.Amanda MacGregor, formerly at Apollo High School Library, St Cloud, MNA lovely graphic novel for gamer girls of all
