What do you do when a ghost won't leave you alone - and it turns dangerous? A tale of finding courage to stand up for oneself and others.

When the ghost started turning evil, it got chilling. Kind of like Chuckie. But I didn't really understand how Anya's speech induced the crossover. Whatever works though. I'm glad that creepy ghost is busted. ( )

wonderful illustrations, easy to read and very exciting story. This book is about a girl who has just moved to the United States from Russia and is embarrassed about it. Then she finds a ghost who becomes her friend. This book would be for fourth to sixth grade. I would use it to show that you need to be proud of your culture, because that is what makes you who you are today. ( )

What's worse, Anya later finds out that Emily had been lying about how she died all along. At last, Anya decides that send Emily to go back the well and goes back her normal life.
Genre: Fantasy Because there is a ghost in the story, it would never happen in our real life, but the major character's life is very real. For an immigrate kid, she may have same problem with Anya's.
