In a word, BRILLIANT.
This was my first foray into graphics. Husband is currently reading the Walking Dead compendium one, and I've always had a curiosity about the graphics he's read, but I've never actually picked them up. I loved Anya. I thought she was real, she was the picture of teen angst, and I related to her on so many different levels. Basically, Anya leaves school grounds, falls in a deep well, and is startled to find a skeleton that belongs to a ghost. When Anya is finally rescued, she discovers she has unwittingly brought the ghost along with her. The rest of the story goes on to explore themes of friendship, social class in both larger society and in the microcosm of high school, self esteem, and a handful of other issues that have plagued teens for centuries. I really liked Anya's journey in this book and Vera Brosgol's style is lovely and dark. It does read quite fast; I finished it in probably an hour.
