Blog 200: Anya’s Ghost

Synopsis of the book from Goodreads
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.

My Review
Cover: The cover was kind of cool. A sneak peek of what the graphic novel was about.

Things that I liked: I liked the storyline of the graphic novel. I like the main character, Anya. She is just trying to fit in at a new school, and not really succeeding. But then something happens. It turns out to be too good to be true, and end in utter chaos. Anya has to fix it somehow and that is one of the things that I like about this story. There is a small problem (ghostly) and Anya has to make things right. I like that I get to see her change things around and make things right in the end.

Things that I didn't like: I would have liked to see the graphic novel in color. I know that there is more of a gray scale colorization here with the graphic novel.

Overall: I really enjoyed the storyline, and I rated the book 4 out of 5 stars.
