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.

I've recently got into graphic novels because of my profound love for Japanese manga. I thought that this one would definitely be a great novel to start with since it's been raved about on Booktube by Jessica from priceiswong. I also love scary ghost stories and a little bit of witty humor on the side. Don't get me wrong, this graphic novel was not scary at all! It's just categorized as kind of a horror graphic novel because it focuses on ghosts and basically the dead.
I really thought, for my graphic novel, this was a great one to start with! It touched about many ideals, some that aimed to teach girls not to be self-conscious about themselves... unless they wanted to be haunted by a ghost that'll ruin your life!
