Présentation de l'éditeur
Of all the things Anya expected to find atthe bottom of an old well, a new friend was not one of them. Especially not a new friend who's been dead for a century.
Falling down a well is bad enough, but Anya's normal life might actually be worse. She's embarrassed by her family, self-conscious about her body, and she's pretty much given up on fitting in at school. A new friend--even a ghost--is just what she needs.
Or so she thinks.
Spooky, sardonic, and secretly sincere, "Anya's Ghost "is a wonderfully entertaining debut from author/artist Vera Brosgol. "Anya's Ghost" is a 2011 "Kirkus" Best Teen Books of the Year title. One of "School Library Journal"'s Best Fiction Books of 2011.One of "Horn Book"'s Best Fiction Books of 2011.

Elle rencontre le fantôme d'une fillette de son âge; morte dans des circonstances dramatiques. Ce fantôme semble lui apporter l'aide nécéssaire pour qu'elle puisse accomplir tous ses rêves...
Une histoire d'adolescence, de sentiment de conformité, d'intégration, de murissement vers l'âge adulte, d'affirmation de soi.
Il y a un je ne sais quoi d'un petit peu simpliste dans la relation entre Anya et le fantôme, mais l'intrigue fonctionne tout de même très bien.

When Anya gets rescued, Emily ends up tagging along. Anya doesn’t much want a ghost in her life, but she is helpful in certain ways. She can help her with answers during tests. She can find out when her crush will be out of class. She gives her tips on being popular. Emily wants to be Anya’s friend forever. And that could be a problem, because Emily is keeping secrets, and she’s a lot more dangerous than she lets on…
I wasn't expecting a lot from this. It starts out the way we’ve seen a couple dozen other graphic novels — misunderstood geek girl, unhappy with her life, grows up, becomes more mature, learns to appreciate the friends and family she has and maybe makes some more friends, too.
This one? It follows the familiar path for a while, and then, slowly, it turns into fairly straightforward horror. The end goal is still the same — personal and emotional growth for the protagonist — but it’s interesting how much the tension and fright ramps up, and how serious and powerful the threat becomes. There’s no gore or anything like that, but it’s still a nice piece of low-key horror.
The characters are great, too. Anya and Emily are the obvious focal points, but Anya’s mother and brother are also very well-created. Everyone else is fun, too — there’s not a dull character in the bunch — snarky Siobhan, geeky Dima, skeezy Sean, beautiful but miserable Elizabeth, even the school principal at the end.
Vera Brosgol’s art is moderately cartoony, but cartooning helps make the characters and situations more universal, more appealing, and more emotional. And the art does a fantastic job of conveying the humor of the story, as well as the eerie shenanigans going on behind the scenes.
Vera Brosgol with her creepy, funny and smart graphic novel, Anya's Ghost didn't disappointed me. It is a perfect page-turner, with its cool and simple drawings, hand in hand with witty dialogue and smart timing.
At some point Vera made me feel completely foolish, I had already made some foreshadowing on the next events. Oh, Vera, how could you do this to me? Although it was pretty astute of hers, she extended the plot beyond I imagined it to be.
To my surprise, some characters felt well developed at some point, I didn't expect that either from a graphic novel (although, again, I'm new to all that).
Specially, I appreciate Vera's perspective on school cliques and circles... you'll understand what I mean once you reach certain event.
I recommend it for anyone who has the opportunity to put their hands on this cool, paranormal novel.
It's definitely one of those coming to age type book, growing up fro experience type of books but in a fictional and illustrated way. The illustrations are really cool and simple in my opinion and demonstrated the emotions and attitudes of the characters very well.
