Waiting on Wednesday (178)

is a weekly feature hosted by Breaking the Spine that 
showcases upcoming releases people are very much anticipating.

Aspects of this book that seem unappealing: NOT A DAMN THING. That freaking cool oh-my-gosh cover. That super epic title. That fucking amazing premise. Here's the down-low: this is, by far, one of my most anticipated books of 2017, and I WANT IT NOW.

In the real world, Eliza Mirk is shy, weird, and friendless. Online, Eliza is LadyConstellation, anonymous creator of the wildly popular webcomic Monstrous Sea. Eliza can’t imagine enjoying the real world as much as she loves her digital community, and 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 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 illustrations from Eliza’s webcomic, as well as screenshots from Eliza’s online forums and snippets of Wallace's fanfiction, this uniquely formatted book will appeal to fans of Noelle Stevenson’s Nimona and Rainbow Rowell’s Fangirl.

Is your pick this week not just anticipated but really really anticipated?
