Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Anya could really use a friend. But her new BFF isnt 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 whos been dead for a century.

Falling down a well is bad enough, but Anyas normal life might actually be worse. Shes embarrassed by her family, self-conscious about her body, and shes 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, Anyas 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 Journals Best Fiction Books of 2011.
One of Horn Books Best Fiction Books of 2011.
Winner of the 2012 Eisner Award for Best Publication for Young Adults (Ages 12-17)

Synopsis:

Anya, embarrassed by her Russian immigrant family and self-conscious about her body, has given up on fitting in at school but falling down a well and making friends with the ghost there just may be worse.
