Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say Not yet rated
Kids say (13):

Web comic author Francesca Zappia writes from experience in this engaging tale of a teen living two lives: a silent one in high school and an exciting one online as creator of a popular web comic. Narrator/protagonist Eliza punctuates her story with texts, emails, and graphic-novel vignettes for a lively read that holds strong appeal for many teen readers, especially introverted, artistic, imaginative ones.

In many ways, Eliza is an extended commercial/prequel for author Zappia's popular web comic Children of Hypnos, but for many readers that'll be a huge plus -- more cool stuff to read.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
