Anya’s Ghost is a graphic novel about a Russian girl that goes by Anya Brozakovskaya. One day while wallowing in self pity, she falls down an abandoned well and falls upon a ghost named Sarah. Later, after getting out of the well, Anya is constantly being stalked by this ghost who is seemingly innocent, but looks can be deceiving.
I really enjoyed this book. I really liked the art work. The storyline was also really fun (but not scary, even though it’s a ghost story). It was interesting to watch Anya change during the book because of all the things Sarah does. Overall, I found this book really fun and a good summer read. I’d recommend Anya’s Ghost to a teen audience. It does have some mature things in it, but nothing too bad.

If you are looking for a fun way to pass time, the A-List, by Zoey Dean, is the perfect series for you.
The book is about a rich, preppy, New York City girl named Anna Percy and her adventures when she moves to California. She is extremely bright, and gets accepted into Yale early action. She decides to go to live with her father (her parents are divorced) in California because she gets an internship there at a literary journal. This internship would replace her senior year of high school. On the plane ride over to California, she meets a seemingly perfect guy, and her average high-class New York city-girl life is about to receive a new, exciting twist.

Okay, so some days I don’t get the most interesting e-mail (or none at all). Recently I joined the Dear Reader Teen Book Club and now get a portion of a book a day for the entire week. It’s so fun because it’s actual teens who select, introduce, and ask questions about the book. A new book is picked each week – it is not always a new title, but something many people would enjoy. It’s a great way to be introduced to array of teen books and authors. To sign up visit here.
