Summary from Goodreads:
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.
My Opinions (SPOILER FREE):
This was a very cute story that reminded me of Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell. Ut was nit as grid as Fangirl in my opinion, but it was still very good.
Characters: The characters in this story were very unique, and I liked that they were unique, but it made it much harder to relate to them. That was the big difference between this book and Fangirl. Fangirl was much more relatable. I also wasn’t very fond of either of the main characters. In all honesty I felt like I wouldn’t like either of them in real life.
Plot: The plot was really good, and it ,over along pretty well. There were a few things that happened that I either didn’t like or that bored me, but for the most part I loved the plot.
Writing: The writing was really good. I’ve never read any of Francesca Zappia’s books, but I’ll definitely be checking out her other books.
