Anya's Ghost

Anya's Ghost

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.

    This review is probably going to be shorter than others because of risk of spoilers. Just take my word for it and read this book. "You may look normal like everyone else, but you're not. Not on the in...

    Anya is a typical American teenager. Or... she would be if only she weren't Russian, or weird, unpopular and clumsy. I mean, things could definitely be worse: she might've still had an accent, be as p...
