This was on a top ten list this year and rightly so. It tells the story of an outsider teen who comes across the ghost of a girl her age who is able to seemingly fix all of her problems. It's a very funny, clever, and heartfelt book. Deep down it's about fitting in and how that feels, how far you'll go to do it, and if that ever matters. It's a solid first book from Vera Brosgol and I really can't wait to see what she does next. According to her website she'll be at the Toronto Comic Arts Festival this May, so I might try and go and meet her. That would be lovely.
Please check this book out, it's a sweet little coming of age story with a twist. I loved it.
