I wanted to like this more than I did. Anya's Ghost by Vera Brosgol is about a girl, a high school Russian immigrant who doesn't feel she fits in. While skipping school, she falls down a well and discovers it is haunted by the ghost of a young woman, Emily, who died about 80 years before. When Anya gets out, a teensy bone ends up in her backpack so the ghost can follow her. Anya's freaked at first but as the ghost helps her cheat on tests and helps her become more popular, Anya invites Emily into her life.
Emily begins to show a dark side when Anya won't go along with all her plans. And when Anya finds out about Emily's true past, things get messy.
I don't know why but it did not work for me. Something just didn't click. maybe because i did not really identify with Anya and her family? Her little brother was cute though. A 4 but it is really highly praised so don't let my meh-ness turn you off the book!
