Anya's Ghost is a beautifully drawn comic with a perhaps Grimm-inspired story attached to it.

It's about Anya, the American daughter of a poor Russian mother, and her struggles to deal with her new "B.F.F." and also the cut-throat culture of both America and High School. It's a cautionary tale where the titular ghost takes the part of Anya's peers, and Anya takes the part of any self-conscious "loser" teen, meaning this book has massive appeal across teen/YA fiction.

I won't spoil the book, but I will say it's beautiful in every sense of the word. I loved it.
