“A love letter to fandom, friendship, and the stories that shape us, Eliza and Her Monsters is absolutely magical.”—Marieke Nijkamp, New York Times–bestselling author of This Is Where It Ends

Eighteen-year-old Eliza Mirk is the anonymous creator of the wildly popular webcomic Monstrous Sea, but when a new boy at school tempts her to live a life offline, everything she’s worked for begins to crumble.

Rainbow Rowell’s Fangirl meets Noelle Stevenson’s Nimona in this acclaimed novel about art, fandom, and finding the courage to be yourself. “A must-have.”—School Library Journal

In the real world, Eliza Mirk is shy, weird, and friendless. Online, Eliza is LadyConstellation, 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 book will appeal to fans of Noelle Stevenson’s Nimona and Rainbow Rowell’s Fangirl.

From Francesca Zappia, the acclaimed author of Eliza and Her Monsters!

When Zora Novak is framed for a crime she didn’t commit, she must track down the true culprit and clear her name before it’s too late. But in a small town obsessed with ghosts, getting people to believe the truth might prove to be impossible.

Stranger Things meets Buffy the Vampire Slayer in this eerie murder mystery. “A darkly humorous, rapid-fire read in which the living are sometimes scarier than the dead.”—Kirkus

When someone burns down the home of the school janitor and he dies in the blaze, everyone in Addamsville, Indiana, points a finger at Zora. Never mind that Zora has been on the straight and narrow since her father was thrown in jail. With everyone looking for evidence against her, her only choice is to uncover the identity of the real killer.

There’s one big problem—Zora has no leads. No one does. Addamsville has a history of tragedy, and thirty years ago a similar string of fires left several townspeople dead. The arsonist was never caught.

Now, Zora must team up with her cousin Artemis—an annoying self-proclaimed Addamsville historian—to clear her name. But with a popular ghost-hunting television show riling up the townspeople, almost no support from her family and friends, and rumors spinning out of control, things aren’t looking good. Zora will have to read between the lines of Addamsville’s ghost stories before she becomes one herself.

Acclaimed author Francesca Zappia has a perfectly pitched teen voice that shines in this inventive novel. Now Entering Addamvsille is perfect for fans of Brittany Cavallaro, Victoria Schwab, and The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina.

Includes interior spot illustrations from the author.

»En uppslukande skildring av depression och ångest, av vänskap och kändisskap på nätet.« | Kirkus Review

Illustrerad succéroman om ett liv på nätet och i den verkliga världen:

I verkligheten är artonåriga Eliza Mirk blyg, knepig, smart och helt utan vänner.
På nätet är hon däremot en supersuccé: under sitt alias LadyConstellation skriver och ritar hon den otroligt populära serien Monstrous Sea som har miljoner fans och läsare.
Eliza kan inte ens föreställa sig att hennes riktiga tillvaro ska kunna mäta sig med den hon lever i på nätet – åtminstone inte förrän Wallace Warland börjar på hennes skola och Eliza inser att den verkliga världen kanske inte måste vara så hemsk ändå.
Men så råkar Elizas alter ego bli avslöjat, och allt ställs på spel: hennes serie, hennes relation till Wallace och hela hennes tillvaro.
En perfekt bok för alla som älskar Noelle Stevensons Nimona och Rainbow Rowells Fangirl.

FRANCESCA ZAPPIA är en amerikansk författare och serietecknare som bor i Indiana, USA. Eliza och hennes monster är hennes andra bok – en stark och gripande ungdomsroman, rikt och originellt illustrerad med seriestrippar och skärmdumpar.

»En fängslande roman om fantasins labyrinter och om hur fans kan kväva objekten för sin beundran.« | Shelf Awareness

  狂野爆笑更勝電影《破處女王》:
  如果大家都說你不正常,最愛你的人一定根本不在乎。

  她每天帶相機出門,拍下所有可疑影像,方便回家後做二度確認。
  無論是回家或是到學校,只要進入另一個環境,她就要做周遭環境檢查。
  她不吃沒吃過的東西,即便是媽媽做的飯或學校午餐,她都要檢查有無
  (一)下毒,
  (二)放追蹤器。
  她無法分辨現實與幻覺。她的世界裡二次世界大戰沒有結束、共產黨和納粹是致命威脅。
  而這一切都要從一個藍眼睛的男孩,和量販店裡一水槽的龍蝦開始解釋起。

  亞歷山大七歲時,在一家超市的龍蝦水槽前遇到了藍眼睛男孩邁爾斯,在他的幫助下,解救了砧板上即將成為亡魂的龍蝦。事後男孩答應和她做朋友,但亞歷山大卻再也沒有見過他。

  根據亞歷山大媽媽的記憶,「龍蝦事件」從未發生過,因為女兒堅持,只好向心理醫生求助,這才發現亞歷山大患有妄想型精神分裂症。

  接下來的十年,她好不容易說服自己,龍蝦事件真的不曾發生,藍眼男孩更是只存在於她的幻想中。沒想到亞歷山大竟在新轉入的高中遇見邁爾斯!

  可是她很快就發現,邁爾斯和自己記憶中的藍眼男孩天差地遠:他聰明但待人處事尖銳、不留情面。

  在知道邁爾斯也有自己特殊的「感情狀況」後,兩人彼此告白、相戀,就在這時亞歷山大的幻覺加劇——教室天花板會竄出蟒蛇,校長對體育館的記分板滔滔不絕,妹妹查理則神出鬼沒——到底自己的家、甚至爸媽,到頭來難道只是一場幻覺?

  本書堪稱青少年版《派特的幸福劇本》——患有妄想型精神分裂症的少女,與情感表達障礙的天才少年,七歲時在超市如假似真的逗趣相遇,十年後重逢一起經歷瘋狂、歡樂又略帶感傷高三生活,最後不落俗套的結局,讓HarperCollins 旗下童書品牌以六位數美金搶下法蘭西絲卡‧莎碧亞這位學生作家的處女作。海外版權已售出德國、捷克、斯洛伐克、土耳其、巴西及法國。
