Summary: Anya could really use a friend. But her new BFF isn't kidding about the "Forever" part. Of all the things Anya expected to find at the bottom of an old well, a new friend was not one of them. Especially not a new friend who’s been dead for a century. Falling down a well is bad enough, but Anya's normal life might actually be worse. She's embarrassed by her family, self-conscious about her body, and she's pretty much given up on fitting in at school. A new friend—even a ghost—is just what she needs. Or so she thinks. Spooky, sardonic, and secretly sincere, Anya's Ghost is a wonderfully entertaining debut from author/artist Vera Brosgol.
Review:I just happened to have done a graphic novel book haul from bookoutlet and this was one of the books that I added to my cart and purchased. I'm really glad I grabbed it because I really loved it. It's a funny and scary coming of age novel. I loved the illustrations, I loved the "shades of grey" colours and the glossy pages. I think Anya was hilarious. I really loved the excuses she tried to use to get out of going to school. I did like Emily in the beginning, but then I didn't, but I won't spoil anything. This is an amazing read that is both hysterical and scary. I would totally read another novel by Vera Brosgol and about Anya. I would recommend this to lovers of ghost stories and also to those who are fans of graphic novels.
