Manifested by Iva Kenaz

Fourteen-year-old Lisa is an incorrigible dreamer obsessed with a hero from a medieval novel she’s been reading, guard Tertius. Eventually, Tertius starts to manifest in Lisa’s life and the two lost souls begin helping each other with their romantic dilemmas. Lisa finds herself drawn to her scoundrelly classmate and Tertius longs to reunite with the love of his life despite the depressingly written destiny. Besides losing herself in fiction, Lisa also wishes to reconcile with her father, an erratic painter whose crazy mind always finds something out-of-ordinary to focus on. Manifested (aka My Melancholic Diary) tells a story about creating your own reality, re-writing what you dislike about your past and start writing a brighter future.
