Enjoyed this all over again; Kate Rudd reads the audio. I loved hearing her narrate Eliza's story of being two people: LadyConstellation, creator of the famous webcomic Monstrous Sea, and Eliza Mirk, invisible nobody at her high school. But when Eliza meets new kid Wallace, an MS fan, she begins to open up to the outside world, while keeping her identity from him a secret; it's her parents who, in the graduation issue of their local paper, reveal her as the creator of MS, and it's Eliza's younger brothers, Church and Sully, who explain to their parents what they've done by stripping away Eliza's anonymity and privacy.

Eliza and Her Monsters is the story of Eliza Mirk. Eliza is quiet and shy and has no friends in the real world but when she is online in her fan forums, she is LadyConstellation, the outgoing, vibrant creator of the enormously popular online comic, Monstrous Sea.

During her senior year of high school, Eliza meets Wallace who is built like a football player but is not a bully like the other players she knows. In fact, he is so introverted that he can only communicate through notes and texts.

When Eliza accidentally discovers that Wallace is "rainmaker." a huge Monstrous Sea fan, he becomes Eliza's first and only friend in the real world, but what happens if she can never find the courage to tell him who she really is?

This is another wonderfully, well-written story by Francesca Zappia that should appeal to a wide range of interests including not only those who spend lots of time online, but also those who enjoy reading stories about teen angst and romance. The online communication in the forums and the story of The Monstrous Sea comic are both expertly woven into this unique and dynamic story of love, loss, and life. ( )

Online, Eliza is LadyConstellation, the anonymous creator of the epically popular webcomic, Monstrous Sea. Offline, Eliza is just Eliza Mirk, shy, weird, and friendless. All her friends are online and she has no desire to try and make them in real life, that is, until she meets a new school transfer, Wallace Warland. Wallace is Monstrous Sea’s biggest fanfiction writer, rainmaker, and the two quickly become friends. Wallace even begins to draw Eliza out of her shell. But when Eliza’s secret online persona is accidentally shared with the world, everything begins to fall apart.

Firstly, this book is absolutely beautiful and amazing. I grew up writing and reading fan fiction as a teenager. Seeing small interactions of fandom life showcased in a positive light made me smile so much. I always find it’s hard to explain fandom life to those not apart of it, but I believe Francesca Zappa was able to capture it perfectly. Like both Eliza and Wallace, at one point, I had friends all over the globe who would “gather together” online to watch episodes together and then geek out over what happened. Those communities made me feel so safe to be able to be myself.

Another thing Zappa really captures well is Eliza’s depression. That hit me in the gut and twisted hard. I went through the same thing after college - I could no longer write, I was super depressed, nothing seemed to be going the way I had thought it would...

“Broken people don’t hide from their monsters. Broken people let themselves be eaten”

This book made me think a lot about my own writing and stories. I use to write all the time, but since I left college, there hasn’t been that spark. This book gave me all kinds of feelings and afterwards, I sat in my bed and really thought about why I even stopped...

“We create art for many reasons - wealth, fame, love, admiration- but I find the one thing that produces the best results is desire. When you want the thing you’re creating, the beauty of it will shine through, even if the details aren’t all in order. Desire is the fuel of creators, and when we have that, motivation will come in its wake.”

Long story short, I wrote something that wasn’t a journal entry in the first time in 5 years. It felt amazing and I really hope I can continue doing it again.

I realize this isn’t much of a review as it is my reflection of the book, but right now, that’s all I can think to do. Maybe one day I’ll come back and edit, but for now, I’ll leave with one of my favorite quotes from the book:

“Like life, what gives a story its meaning is the fact that it ends. Our stories have lives of their own - and it’s up to us to make them mean something.” ( )

I was hesitant to read this because I really don't enjoy books about people dealing with mental illness.

After seeing a video by The Novel Lush in her Eliza and Her Monsters Discussion: Unpopular Opinion! published on 12 jun. 2017 I can safely say I really wouldn't enjoy it.
