    When I was in high school, there wasn?t a lot of bullying. And there weren?t really any cliques. Or maybe there were but I was just too blissfully ignorant to notice. It?s not like I was especially popular. It?s not as if I wasn?t kind of nerdy or kind of artsy or kind of fre...

    PS: After my first reading in 2014 I gave it 5 stars; after my second reading, in 2016: 3 stars. After class discussion today, two days after rereading the book, I have to bump it back up to 4 stars. In the class this summer we have thus far Ms. Marvel, Paper Girls, Blankets, The Arriv...

    Just to *touch* this book is a special treat. The black and white graphic photos are filled with emotion themselves. Anya is a teenage girl -in High School -in the United States ---from Russia. Yeah....'you' try fitting in! The story, photos, shape of the book, 'feel' of the b...

    The really, really short review: I started this book last night. I was happy to get up this morning because I knew I'd get to finish it over breakfast. I WAS HAPPY TO GET UP ON A MONDAY, PEOPLE. The still reasonably short review: I'm not feeling very eloquent today, so I thoug...

    Brief Introduction: After reading so many graphic novels that dealt with superheroes and electrifying bloody action scenes, I finally came across a graphic novel that is aimed at young adults, but actually deals with the more mundane aspects of our lives (or should I say, the ...

    4 1/2 stars It?s been a while since I?ve read a real graphic novel that?s not just text with illustrations. So it may be partly because I?ve been missing the format, but I was completely blown away by this book. It made me remember everything that?s possible in a graphic n...

    As if it being five o'clock on a Friday of a three day weekend isn't exciting enough, I found a blue library envelope on my doorstep this afternoon with a brand spanking new copy of Anya's Ghost inside. Guys, it is GORGEOUS. I'm talking Golum "my precious" impersonation inspiring gorge...

    This review is probably going to be shorter than others because of risk of spoilers. Just take my word for it and read this book. "You may look normal like everyone else, but you're not. Not on the inside." Initial Final Page Thoughts. Aww. I wish all books were graphic novels....

    Anya's Ghost I found Anya?s Ghost created by Vera Brosgol, an enchanting and entertaining graphic novel. It?s a YA magical tale that hits that sweet spot where is an appropriate read for young readers and still interesting for adults. On a completely different note, I also ...

    Very original and innovative story! I was so engrossed I read it in less than two hours, almost one whole sitting. The twist really got me. Anya's a very unique and relatable character who matures in the book. I like how the story shows many sides to bullying- those who get bullied exp...

    Anya is a teenage schoolgirl with all the usual insecurities about her weight, clothes, friends, etc. compounded by embarrassment over her Russian heritage. She makes an effort to lose her accent, avoid fatty Russian food, and even tells people her surname is Brown instead of her actua...

    Well this was fun! I loved the art: it was really cute and stylized and awesome. And I really loved the story line: it became creepy and dangerous and that was awesome! However, I can't give it 5 stars because I didn't like the main character.. I was hoping she would grow throughout th...

    3.5/5 i just started getting into graphic novels and i think they may be my new favorite thing. ANYA'S GHOST was insightful, quick, and a bit creepy. i love how anya develops throughout the novel. it made me a bit sad in the beginning how embarrassed she was to be from russia and...

    I just really started getting into graphic novels in the past year or so, and so far, Anya's Ghost is my favorite. I loved the drawings, I thought the story was super engrossing, and really easy to follow (which isn't always the case with graphic novels). I thought this story was r...

    Anya is a typical American teenager. Or... she would be if only she weren't Russian, or weird, unpopular and clumsy. I mean, things could definitely be worse: she might've still had an accent, be as plump as her mother, or (God Forbid!) the resident school weirdo. Good thing, she put...

    Well, this was quite enjoyable and yet at the same time quite disappointing, I guess. To start off with the positives, what I really loved about Anya's Ghost is its artwork and colour scheme. I loved how each and every page was in light shades of purple, white and black. I love such...

    I am trying to read more and more graphic novels, because that is what my students are reading. This story was fun and extremely creative. It also had a great message about how we never know and understand fully what others are thinking or what they are going through. The main ch...

    ?You?re no saint, Anya. You?re just like me? This story follows Anya Borzakovskaya who?s an immigrant from Russia, residing in the United States, alongside her mother and brother. Anya isn't doing particularly well in school. She doesn't have many friends. And one day...

    4.5* I really enjoyed this. It was brilliantly creepy in all the right ways, yet it also has an underlying depth and fantastic message to it which I really enjoyed! It flowed well and I really loved the art style! Finished it in under an hour and thoroughly enjoyed it, I can't wait to ...

    Like me, If you are afraid of ghosts, just the mere thought of them can make you go crazy, I'll suggest not the read the book in night. This is what I did and Oh God, Don't ask me what it was like to sleep turning off the lights. If it's difficult for you to see how the characte...

    It was a pretty fun read and I finished reading it in one sitting. Actually, I read this book when I didn't feel fine. I was sick and I was pretty dizzy at that time but I couldn't stop reading it. I was just so curious about the story and I liked it! It was a pretty fun read. ...

    [Thank you Ritu for putting this up on our shelf. An important addition.] It all appears glossy on the surface, the lives of others. Scratch beneath and you shall find the truth. Vera Brosgol does a good work in terms of artwork. The story build up is nice and easy. From f...

    ??No one has the right to decide who gets to live or die.?? I will tell you straight away that this is so much more than a comic. I thought it would be a cute tale, a whimsical ghost story and, following a discussion with my dear friend Marina, I decided to try my luck wit...
