Insta Review: Anya’s Ghost, by Vera Brosgol

Insta Review gives you a new book recommendation in under a minute. Go ahead, time it!

WHATTTTT WHATWHATWHAT. Man, I thought ghost stories were terrifying when they were in traditional form – and then I read this ghostly graphic novel, Anya’s Ghost. Teenage Anya is sick of bullies, being invisible to boys, and dealing with her “fobby” Russian family. So when she ends up with the mysterious ghost of a young girl following her and helping her gain some social clout, she’s enjoying it too much to ask questions. But eventually, she realizes that the ghost’s intentions aren’t quite what she expected – and she’s put herself and her family in a dangerous situation. Dark, spooky, and different than anything I’ve ever read before, Anya’s ghost is a sure hit for YA graphic novel lovers. Language, sex, and otherwise mature content make Anya’s Ghost better for older readers, even though younger ones will beg for it. My only regret was reading this book at night, by myself, and then trying to fall asleep 😳 #awake #neversleepingagain
