This graphic novel has become one of my favorites! It’s a touching ghost story, but it also has elements about growing up, and changing. The book is a quick read that is great for the fall season, but isn’t a scary ghost story. I found it to be a very heartwarming middle-grade read.
The story follows Lora, who is struggling with her fading friend group. She meets Alexa, a young ghost around her age that is haunting her house. They form a bond and become the best of friends. But, as readers we know that ghosts always have to move on. Still, Lore and Alexa were great characters, and the side characters, though few, were also very likable.
“To childhood, and growing up, and growing old, and magic – whatever age we are.”
I loved the writing, story, and artwork. It is such a beautiful story, and I think that is reflected really well in the art style. I loved watching Alexa and Lora create this friendship, but it was sad to see Lora grow and change while Alexa stayed the same. And, don’t get me started on the ending.
Overall, this book is so cute and sad. I’m not going to lie, I sobbed at the ending of this book. The thing is, you can tell how the story is going to end, because it only makes sense. But, that doesn’t make it any less heart breaking. Nevertheless, the story as a whole was wonderful, and such a quick read.
