Lady Constellation is the engaging and enigmatic creator of the fabulously popular Fan fiction, Monstrous Sea. Eliza Mirk is a grumbly socially outcast teen who can't wait for high school to be over. What do these two ladies have in common? They are the same person! Eliza keeps her two lives separate, but what happens when the line starts to blur and her well built walls come crumbling down? This book is a beautifully written tribute to the kids who are passionate dreamers but maybe wary of the monsters that hide in plain sight. Fans of Rainbow Rowell and John Green will love this book!

— Kelli O'Malley


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.

Scott Westerfeld's Afterworlds meets Nimona in this novel about art, fandom, and finding the courage to be yourself. Features illustrations by the author throughout. Perfect for readers of Rainbow Rowell's Fangirl, this is the second novel by the acclaimed author of Made You Up.

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.
