If you've ever wondered what JK Rowling felt about the Harry Potter fandom, or how Noelle Stevenson felt about creating Nimona, you may just be able to get a glimpse in Eliza and Her Monsters. A lovely story about the creation of your art and what happens when it gets overwhelmingly popular, paired with a sweet high school romance makes this a great read for fans of Nimona and Rainbow Rowell's Fangirl and Carry On.
