Read Anya's Ghost Online Free - 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.

When I was in high school, there wasn’t a lot of bullying. And there weren’t really any cliques. Or maybe there were but I was just too blissfully ignorant to notice. It’s not like I was especially popular. It’s not as if I wasn’t kind of nerdy or kind of artsy or kind of freaky. I mean, look at...

It’s been a while since I’ve read a real graphic novel that’s not just text with illustrations. So it may be partly because I’ve been missing the format, but I was completely blown away by this book. It made me remember everything that’s possible in a graphic novel, but impossible when...

This review is probably going to be shorter than others because of risk of spoilers. Just take my word for it and read this book.
"You may look normal like everyone else, but you're not. Not on the inside."
Initial Final Page Thoughts.
Aww. I wish all books were graphic novels.

Like me, If you are afraid of ghosts, just the mere thought of them can make you go crazy, I'll suggest not the read the book in night.
This is what I did and Oh God, Don't ask me what it was like to sleep turning off the lights.
If it's difficult for you to see how the characters change drastical...

I just really started getting into graphic novels in the past year or so, and so far, Anya's Ghost is my favorite.
I loved the drawings, I thought the story was super engrossing, and really easy to follow (which isn't always the case with graphic novels).
I thought this story was really unique and...

As if it being five o'clock on a Friday of a three day weekend isn't exciting enough, I found a blue library envelope on my doorstep this afternoon with a brand spanking new copy of Anya's Ghost inside. Guys, it is GORGEOUS. I'm talking Golum "my precious" impersonation inspiring gorgeous.

PS: After my first reading in 2014 I gave it 5 stars; after my second reading, in 2016: 3 stars. After class discussion today, two days after rereading the book, I have to bump it back up to 4 stars. In the class this summer we have thus far Ms. Marvel, Paper Girls, Blankets, The Arrival, Ghost W...
