[Book Review] Anya's Ghost by Vera Brosgol

Book Reviews

It’s so good to read graphic novels with lessons learned after you finished it. And Anya’s ghost made me realized so many lessons in there.

Anya was a Russian girl who dislikes the way she is or what she came from because she thinks she couldn’t fit in her school, and in her new world. Until, one time she fell on a deep hole which she found a trapped ghost, which eventually this ghost became her companion in everything she does. But, this help offered by the ghost became ambitious because the ghost suddenly wants to replace her and become ANYA. Which the incident happened to Anya realizes something, a valuable lesson that will make her life change.

To be honest, I am not that good in reviewing graphic novel books that I read because I just rated them at Goodreads with just a few words in it. But, because it is 2019 I will try my best to review this genre.

So here are the things I liked in Anya’s ghost:

  • The pictures/drawings were so good that the graphic artist used 2 or 3 colors only that literally pop up the unique drawings in the story.
  • The words were clearly visible and readable even without zooming it.
  • There was character progress in the story, especially on Anya’s part.
  • A very catchy story that will enjoy both adult and children.

This graphic novel will be my recommended graphic novel this 2019!

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.

RATING: 4/5
