Probably the best graphic novel I have ever read. This read like a great horror/suspense movie and left me on the edge of my seat. It also dealt with heavy themes such as immigration, body image and finding your place. Loved it.

staff pick for part of the Graphic Novel Shopping Guide for Perplexed Parents of Tweens and Teens, Nov 2013 (sophisticated black and white graphic novel, particularly suited to young women)

This book may work well for a teen book club.

A good spin on the Doctor Faustus premise that could appeal to teen readers.

Neil Gaiman fans will enjoy this dark, but ultimately uplifting, graphic novel centered on Anya, a witty teenage girl embarrassed by her Russian immigrant family. When Anya falls into an old well on her way home from school, she discovers the ghost of a girl long dead and promises to help her solve her murder. But Anya soon realizes that her new spectral friend has a horrifying dark side.

this book is great. I loved it. I never thought that the ghost was going to turn out like that but i had the feeling that the ghost wasn't just going to be nice.

I always forget how much I love graphic novels until I read another one. I really enjoy and appreciate the way the art and the words create the whole story. I am in awe of such amazing talent. Anya's Ghost was the perfect mix of supernatural and realistic high school life. I feel like any girl (or boy) can relate to Anya through her tribulations in family life and in school and feeling different. Though her identity might not be the same as mine I definitely felt a kindred spirit. The supernatural element of Anya bringing a ghost home with her sparked just the right amount of spooky plot. Through Emily's actions and her own, Anya is able to work through some road blocks and learn a few things about herself. A perfect read for almost everyone but especially teens! The only problem is that I want more!

i can compared my life to anya..because i know how it feels not to fit in high school ;]

Anya’s story is for everyone who has ever felt like an outsider and wished to be just like everyone else. She struggles with her identity as a Russian immigrant, worries about her weight, and feels as if she has no friends. When Anya falls down a well, she meets a ghost whom she unwittingly brings home when she is rescued.
