Polterguys is a black-and-white, manga-style "story of a nerdy college girl befriending a bunch of ghost guys and solving their unfinished businesses." The nerdy girl is named Bree, the college town is a take on Berkeley, and the guys are all hiding in an old rental house for reasons that become clear as the story progresses.

After going through several roommates, Bree scores a room in an o...more

I wasn't quite sure what to expect when I started reading this, but I am liking it a LOT. You have this cute, nerdy character who is socially awkward and doesn't get along well with people, but it's not because she's a bad person, she's just more introverted and is studying to be a doctor. This was definitely a character I could relate with, and I think that is one reason I liked this book so much.
