Anya's Ghost by Vera Brosgol- Falling down a well is bad enough, but Anya’s normal life might actually be worse. She’s embarrassed by her family and she’s pretty much given up on fitting in at school. A new friend—even a ghost—is just what she needs.

When Anya becomes friends with a ghost, that friendship has consequences that she never expected.

I haven't read this, but it sounds a lot like a web comic I read called, "Ava's Demon". I think I'll check it out. :L

This is a graghic Novel with good clean drawings,

The story definitly not for little kids,
I did find the Ghost Creepy but Anya was not the most pleaseant person either. Can't give too much away.

Worth the Read.

This graphic novel is a very interesting read. The art style is easy on the eyes, and the story itself is very interesting. While it does feel a bit clichéd at times, it still is a worthwhile read.

This book is scary, funny, and extremely well written fora first book!

Spooky in a fun and believable way. Although the drawing style will appeal for children, I wouldn't recommend it for young readers. It addresses some pretty heavy concepts.

anya is a funny girl who reminds me a lot of my self. in the story when she is walking she notices a whole in the ground and she looks in and finds a corspe ... she accidentally falls in and tries to scream for help... staying there for a few hours a voice starts talking to her as she looks its the ghost of a dead girl. eagered to get out of that whole the ghost puts a piece of the corspe in anjas poket so that when she gets out of the whole she goes with her everywhere she goes because she cant be away from her body ... later in the story some weird things happen. causing anja to want to abandon the ghost girl... then a dark secret hauntes them both when she realizes the ghost girl was the one who killed her parents
..... i recommend this book to anyone who loves thriller and action-packed books ... this is a book that you would want to read over and over again :)
