Back blurb of Anya's Ghost by Vera Brogsol:
Anya could really use a friend. But her new BFF isn't kidding about the "Forever" part. Of all the things Anya expected to find at the 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.

I only recently finished Show by Orhan Pamuk and I am struggling to capture the words for the amazing Of Love and Other Demons by Gabriel Garcia Marquez. I can't deny that Read Nobels Challenge 2016 is upping my reading game! (I'm still sort of in a lurch from Snow ... I want to hang on the feeling of a great read for a bit longer.) This week, I thought I'd take a bit of a breather with a graphic novel which I admit is a genre I rarely venture into. 

I know the snippets don't give you much. But the cover ... and that Neil Gaiman loves this! Do you read graphic novels? Recs please!
