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 graphic novel from author/artist Vera Brosgol.

Reviews

""Anya's Ghost "is a masterpiece, of YA literature and of comics." --Neil Gaiman "Remarkable. . . . With an attitude and aptitude reminiscent of Marjane Satrapi ("Persepolis") who likewise conveyed the particulars of an immigrant adolescence, Brosgol has created a smart, funny and compassionate portrait of someone who, for all her sulking and sneering, is the kind of daughter many parents would like to have. And the kind of girl many of us maybe once were." --"The New York Times" "Anya's Ghost is a masterpiece, of YA literature and of comics." --Neil Gaiman"Remarkable. . . .
