Anya's Ghost by Vera Brosgol

Anya is not happy with her life.  She's embarrassed of her family, would rather ignore her heritage, and feels like she does not fit in no matter how hard she tries.  Then, she falls down a well, meets a new ghostly friend, and her world really gets weird.

Anya is a character reflective of many teens, worrying about how to conform but yet trying to also discover who she really is.  When she meets Emily in the well, Anya's life becomes more complicated, but in the end also becomes more clear.

Brosgol's debut graphic novel delivers bold illustrations, a likable character that teens (and even adults!) can relate to, and a story with a good message for those who read it.  I look forward to seeing what the author will bring us next.

Have you met Anya's ghost?  What were your thoughts?


  1. I agree about Anya being reflective of many teens -- I think so many of them worry about fitting in.

    I was a big fan of Anya's Ghost and can't wait to see what she will come up with next.

  2. April (BooksandWine) ... I look forward to what's next, too! Thanks for stopping by!
