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. Anya's Ghost is a 2011 Kirkus Best Teen Books of the Year title. One of School Library Journal’s Best Fiction Books of 2011.One of Horn Book’s Best Fiction Books of 2011.Winner of the 2012 Eisner Award for Best Publication for Young Adults (Ages 12-17)

A solid 3.5 stars, but I'm bumping the rating on here up to 4. I liked the story and thought the art was really nice (maybe not for everyone, but I liked it), and I would recommend it, but I don't think I liked it enough to buy a copy for my shelf. I'm glad I found it at the library, though, and I'l...
I wasn't really sure what I was getting into when I picked this one up, but it was a lot of fun! I had found it while searching for a comic for the Read Harder Challenge and it doesn't even fit the category that I was trying to fit it into, but it was worth the read anyway! There's just so much h...
Anya's Ghost. This book, well, um..... *laughs nervously* It was creepy. Very creepy. It gave me the shivers. The ghost, Emily, was scary. And I think the pictures-the color scheme and the drawings themselves- really added to the eeriness. And I liked that. But here's the thing; Anya's Ghost is ...
The really, really short review: I started this book last night. I was happy to get up this morning because I knew I'd get to finish it over breakfast.I WAS HAPPY TO GET UP ON A MONDAY, PEOPLE.The still reasonably short review:I'm not feeling very eloquent today, so I thought I'd post a transcript o...
