Also by this author: Eliza and Her Monsters

Her story is a phenomenon. Her life is a disaster.

In the real world, Eliza Mirk is shy, weird, and friendless. Online, she’s LadyConstellation, the anonymous creator of the wildly popular webcomic Monstrous Sea. Eliza can’t imagine enjoying the real world as much as she loves the online one, and she has no desire to try.

Then Wallace Warland, Monstrous Sea’s biggest fanfiction writer, transfers to her school. Wallace thinks Eliza is just another fan, and as he draws her out of her shell, she begins to wonder if a life offline might be worthwhile.

But when Eliza’s secret is accidentally shared with the world, everything she’s built—her story, her relationship with Wallace, and even her sanity—begins to fall apart.


I really enjoy this book. I had to grow and like Eliza character but that was kind of the point overall. I love how the story was told through writing, drawing, comics and web chats. It made the book seem like i was really in eliza head. She was a hard character to like at the start but at the end i really liked her. I did love wallace as well. It became a super fast pace novel and i hope to read more by this author in the future. I thought it addressed fame, depression, first love and friendships and family drama in a very creative way. The book made me want to read it because i wanted to learn to love Eliza and by the end I did. I love the relationship between Eliza and Wallace but I also love Eliza online friends. If you like fangirl, I think you would enjoy this book.
