Resource Description

Eighteen-year-old Eliza has difficulty fitting in at home and at school, considers herself weird, and distances herself from relationships. But, Eliza has a secret life: she is the creator of a popular online comic book that lets her express herself as she can’t in person. When an avid fan of her comic moves to her school, she finds herself developing a relationship with him, but when her online identity is exposed, it almost destroys her. This award-winning novel deals with contemporary issues, including online communication, isolation, self-identity, bullying, effects of technology, and relationships with family and friends. Best suited for literature circles and small group reading. Log in to read the full review.
