Recently I have been reading a lot of graphic novels. Anya’s Ghost by Vera Brosgol is a beautifully illustrated graphic novel about a teenage girl named Anya. It gets deeper into her life and her feelings as she struggles to maintain the cool at school. Being a immigrant from Russia she has to face so many things to get it straight. I enjoyed the beautiful art and interesting story, even though the story feels predictable and old I am sure readers will enjoy it.
Anya Borzakovskaya is got the normal teenage insecurities going on and her desire to blend in is compounded by being a Russian immigrant. She looks around her and sees skinny, blonde and effortless perfection compared to her. She is upset that her crush is going out with such perfect girl. She is not that good at making friends too but one day she finds this awesome friend who is ready to help her in everything. Her grades go up, she feels confident and beautiful. She has got this BFF who is fabulous but her best friend is a ghost. Now you will have to read and find out what happens next.
As the story was old school and easy to predict my rating: 3 out of 5. But it is a good book and I recommend this to graphic novel fans out there.
