Identity Quotes

How we cite our quotes:

Quote #10

Even though I now knew Aech was actually a female in real life, her avatar was still male, so I decided to continue to refer to him as such. (34.17)

For Wade, Aech's online identity still holds priority over her true identity. Since Wade's no longer compulsively obsessed with the OASIS at the end of the novel, maybe he can look beyond the avatar and see Aech for who she really is.
