Read This! Anya's Ghost

by: 
Arra, Lakewood Library

Anya doesn’t fit in a school or home.  Her mom wants her to respect her Russian immigrant roots but she wants to be a normal American teen.  When she falls down the well in the park she finally gains a best friend, one that has been dead since 1918. Emily may have been dead for a century but she is determined to help Anya transform into a popular girl at school.  As the saying goes, the grass isn’t always greener on the other side of the fence and sinister secrets follow Emily from the grave.  This is a well drawn story with images that perfectly capture what it is to feel like an awkward teen trying to fit in.  I loved this story from start to finish.
