Move Over Casper
On my quest for a graphic novel, I came across Anya’s Ghost by Vera Brosgol, a story about a Russian girl trying to fit in in a private American school. Her life changes when she falls down a well and meets the ghost of a young girl who died a century earlier. They become friends, until it becomes clear they have ulterior motives.
It’s a more simplistic story (by that I mean it has a more basic linear narrative), but its well-illustrated and has great twists.
So far, I believe that this would be the best book to introduce to my students. It has a relatively easy story line and unexpected twists in the plot would (hopefully) get my students more enthused about reading.
