Anya's Ghost
By

Rating
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.A 2011 Kirkus Best Teen Book of the Year A School Library Journal Best Fiction Book of 2011A Horn Book Best Fiction Book of 2011Winner of the 2012 Eisner Award for Best Publication for Young Adults (Ages 12-17)
