Review Anya's Ghost by Vera Brosgol




Anya's ghost is a book that works on so many levels. Just by the cover alone lovers of paranormal books will be intrigued. While the paranormal element in this book is enjoyable, what I enjoyed most was the glimpse into Anya's life and her personal journey throughout the book. Anya is of an age when she is developing her identity. That means trying to separate herself from her Russian families food, acquaintances and church. Stomping home from work one day Anya finds her self trapped in a well and meets a young girl named Emily who is fascinated by her every word  and wants to be her best friend.

Sounds great right? Well there is one problem, Emily is dead! A piece of her skeleton finds its way into Anya's backpack and now Emily is following Anya to school giving her advice on hair and makeup and so much more.

But as Anya blends in with the cool crowd she finds that many things that look perfect in life aren't, and that includes Emily.

First Second is one of my favorite publishers and This book is another graphic Novel classic! Vera's art style is very crisp and emotive, especially with the development of Emily's character.

A wonderfully creepy read with a character that learns an important lesson about family and appearances.

I'm such a fan of Vera's ! looking forward to more from her in the future.
