Synopsis

TWO GIRLS, THOUSANDS OF MILES APART...

Chelsea lives in Los Angeles; Miya lives in Tokyo. Other than the fact they're both half Japanese and obsessed with dressing like Gothic Lolitas, they would seem to have nothing in common. Or do they?

THE BLOG THAT WENT AWAY.

They got to know each other through their blogs. But three years ago something happened to Chelsea, an event so terrible that she stopped writing altogether. Miya's been checking Chelsea's blog ever since, to see if she's come back, but she never has. Until today.

A LIFE AND DEATH CONNECTION.

Today is the day Chelsea finally goes back online and tells Miya everything. And today is the day that Miya's life could change forever because of it.

Like a Japanese manga come to life, Gothic Lolita is a mythic fairy tale about love, death, and rebirth...and the courage it takes to reach out to another soul.

Atmospherically moody and often confusing, this dual narrative is told from the perspective of two teenage girls: Miya, who lives in Tokyo, and Chelsea, in California.

Common Sense Media

While it has some universal themes of love and the human connection, the author tries too hard to make a simple plot complex.
