Title Profile & Character Information

Anya's Ghost

Annotation
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 atthe 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 Ghostis a wonderfully entertaining debut from author/artist Vera Brosgol.
