Anya’s Ghost, by Vera BrosgolRead about another entry on the list.
Anya just wants someone to talk to. She’s worried about her weight, the cute boy at school, and steering clear of Dima, a fellow Russian student who reminds her of everything she’s trying not to be. Feeling disconnected and friendless, Ana meets a young girl who seems like the answer to all of her issues. The only problem? She’s 100% dead. Vera Brosgol’s brilliant graphic novel is part murder mystery, part ode to awkward adolescence.
