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 Ghostis a wonderfully entertaining debut from author/artist Vera Brosgol.

I am very passionate about teaching the importance of loving to learn! I like to instill in my students that learning never stops, no matter how old you get. And learning doesn't stop just because you are out of school... you keep the hunger for knowledge alive always, and this will help you be your best authentic self and help make the world a better place!

I have close to 45 bright students, all in need of being exposed to rich text and the importance of reading! We are a Title 1 school, and all resources are precious and greatly appreciated. Many of them do not have books or resources in their homes, so it is very important to me to be able to help open those doors for them.
