Review by: Tina


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.


This book is such a gem. As soon as I picked it up, I could not put it down. There's something about creation and being lost in your art that I find so appealing. There are times when I truly wonder if the most brilliant writer/artist is an emotional wreck. The main character Eliza completely embodies what I "think" a true artist is, an introvert, lost in the vast universe of her creation, and unwilling to face reality. I love how Eliza is such a relatable character and how she struggles to come out of her shell. I love her journey and her stories; it is such a great read!
