I loved this book so much when I first read it at eighteen and after I re-read it recently at twenty-five, I was really pleased to see that it hasn't lost anything in the passing of time.Ghost World's wit, charm and endless mountains of sarcasm somehow feel just as fresh as they ever did - and I think this is to do with the eternalness of the plotline of two young female best friends with no clue about what they're going to do with their lives now that high school is over. Sure, Enid Coleslaw and her best friend Rebecca aren't entirely mainstream, but their problems are and Enid's weirdness only makes it more charming. (I love her, basically. Definitely one of my favourite fictional characters of all time.)

If you've ever been a teenage girl, read this. If you've ever felt like you're waiting for your life to start, read this. If you've ever felt on the edges of the action, read this. If the popular (read: idiot) kids called you weird, read this.
