by Vera Brosgol [YA PB Brosgol]
beautifully illustrated graphic novel is the story of a second
generation Russian-American girl and her adventures with a local ghost.
It handles fairly typical young adult issues such as body image problems
and the wages of popularity fairly well, if a bit glancing. Brosgol
chooses to keep the story light and pleasant rather than dig deep into
these issues. Overall I found it enjoyable and quick. -- recommended by Ben F. - South Branch Library
