Enne (worldsofwords) | 123 comments 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

noor (smendes) | 285 comments Chapter 10..ik its been a while but life happened. ANyways i dont know how i feel about this book. its like...going at a slow pace and there isnt much action...maybe because its the beginning, idk. also, i dont like when she puts excerpts of her comic. im not a fan of that kind of fantasy and so it doesnt make sense 2 me

I can really connect to Eliza too. It is nice to read about someone who is similar. It makes you feel a little less weird.

I feel the exact same way. It is hard to like Eliza right now. She is being rather selfish. I love her parents because they are at least trying to understand. It seems like she has a compulsive nature and she has let it get out of control. It is evident in Chapter 29... you'll see.
