Anya attends a slightly snobby private school where she has precisely one friend, dodges the Russian boy her mother wishes she'd befriend, and coasts by doing as little work as possible. Then, stomping home from school in a snit, she takes a shortcut and falls down an abandoned well -- a well that is haunted by a teenage ghost who's been hanging out alone for 90 years. When the ghost follows her home, Anya seems to have a new friend. But friendships with dead girls can be a little more complicated than Anya would have guessed.This is an odd little graphic novel that grew on me as I read it. I started off not really liking Anya much, which put me off. So I didn't feel as sorry for her as I maybe should have when she fell down that well and was stuck there for two days. Then I didn't like the ghost much, either -- she's vague and bland aside from her self-pity.
