"A Girl's Guide to Saving the Universe" by Andie Arthur
Penny Applebaum is an average college student, whose boyfriend, Will, happens to be the chosen one, the one destined to save Birenllor (a small, magical country that exists underneath a Chicago el station) from The Protectorate, a dark tyrant who has usurped the throne. Unfortunately for Penny, Will has fallen into shadow -- and it is up to her to find him. With the help of a talking lantern and a college professor who moonlights as a wizard, Penny takes her own hero's journey through Birenllor and finds out that Will perhaps wasn't as valiant as he was prophesied to be.
