Title: Anya’s Ghost

Author:  Vera Brosgol

Collection:  Graphic Novels

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.

With a story that will be relevant to any teen girl navigating through the challenges of growing up, and particularly for those who have newly emigrated to the United States, Anya’s Ghost takes a breathtakingly spooky turn that will also please those who like reading thrillers.  Brosgol’s tale and illustrations are both great, and I look forward to more works by her in future.
