Wonderful YA graphic novel that's as much about dealing with your cultural identity as an immigrant as it is about the creepy ghost. Well worth your time. ( )

Neil Gaiman calls this book a masterpiece. I don't disagree. Anya is navigating high school with an accent, an usual name, and a ghost. She begins to rely on her ghost to help her through each day...but things (and ghosts) are not always what they seem. Equal parts charming and terrifying, Anya's Ghost somehow manages to be relateable to anyone who's lived through high school. ( )

This was a fun read! It maintained its spookiness while still discussing some important issues. I also enjoyed the art and the character Dima! ( )

Quick and thrilling read. Even though there are hints that Emily is not what she seems, I didn't really see it coming til the reveal. I do feel the three threads (high school, ghost drama, and the fact of Anya's Russian background) didn't really all mesh together in the end, but the stylistic artwork and the good pacing and drama in the story does make up for it.
