Anda loves Coarsegold Online, the massively-multiplayer role-playing game where she spends most of her free time. It’s a place where she can be a leader, a fighter, a hero. It’s a place where she can meet people from all over the world, and make friends.
But things become a lot more complicated when Anda befriends a gold farmer–a poor Chinese kid whose avatar in the game illegally collects valuable objects and then sells them to players from developed countries with money to burn. This behavior is strictly against the rules in Coarsegold, but Anda soon comes to realize that questions of right and wrong are a lot less straightforward when a real person’s real livelihood is at stake.
From acclaimed teen author (Little BrotherFor the Win) and Boing Boing editor Cory Doctorow and Koko Be Good creator Jen Wang, In Real Life is a perceptive and high-stakes look at adolescence, gaming, poverty, and culture clash.

Très bon roman graphique qui met en perspective deux mondes parmi les gamers : ceux qui jouent pour gagner de l’argent ; et ceux qui gagnent de l’argent pour jouer. J’ai trouvé cette intrigue très intéressante et bien menée. Choc des cultures, choc des codes de conduite,  ce roman graphique amène à une profonde réflexion. Quant aux dessins et la colorisation, ils sont très réussis. A lire absolument !
