Eighteen-year-old Eliza Mirk is the anonymous creator of Monstrous Sea, a wildly popular webcomic, but when a new boy at school tempts her to live a life offline, everything she’s worked for begins to crumble.
In the real world, Eliza Mirk is shy, weird, smart, and friendless. Online, Eliza is LadyConstellation, the anonymous creator of a popular webcomic called Monstrous Sea. With millions of followers and fans throughout the world, Eliza’s persona is popular. Eliza can’t imagine enjoying the real world as much as she loves her digital community. Then Wallace Warland transfers to her school, and Eliza 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. With pages from Eliza’s webcomic, as well as screenshots from Eliza’s online forums, this uniquely formatted book will appeal to fans of Noelle Stevenson’s Nimona and Rainbow Rowell’s Fangirl
I loved reading Eliza and her monsters. The story was refreshing and it was really new to see drawings of the author in this book. I especially loved the relationship between Eliza and Wallace. They are so cute together! I was wishing the best for them when I was devouring this book. But I couldn't stop myself to be frustrated when Wallace discovered that she was Lady Constellation. He could've been happy to meet his favorite author, but no, he acted like a jerk and stopped talking to her. It was pretty long before we arrived to this part of the story and I was sure it would've happen sooner because they talk a lot about it in the synopsis. But even tho it's far in the book, we arrive pretty fast at that part, because the book is really fun to read and isn't difficult to read.
Another reason why I loved this book is because I felt a bound with the character of Eliza. She have anxiety and doesn't have a big relation with her parents.
