Drawing the line: No Ladies in Room A3 by CLARE SCOPES (Book Review #909)


Drawing the line is a historical fiction about Maggie Goodwin. The story is set in 1938, and no ladies are working as animators at Harley Studios, Los Angeles. Maggie wants to prove everyone wrong.        


As a female protagonist, I found Maggie to be the perfect character for this storyline. Her personality and charisma were beyond her time, and as a reader, I could understand her point of view.

Rating: 4 out of 5.

The pace of the story was steady and kept the reader intrigued. I also found the formatting of the story to be appealing. It was clear that the author cared about the presentation of her story. The cover design reflected the material inside.

In a world where most of the time we get to see rejection and hear many, ‘No’s,’ Maggie is determined to make something of herself and to be known as an animator. We read the journey she takes and how she even gets scrutinized over preferring to wear pants instead of skirts.

The literature was well written, and the story was described in a well-mannered way. I recommend it to anyone who likes to read women’s fiction and historical fiction.
