Anya's Ghost by Vera Brosgol
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.
Level Up by Gene Luen Yang
What do you get when you pair four pesky little angels and a video game obsessed teen who is undecided of his future? Meet Dennis, the son of Chinese immigrants, yearns to play video games like his friends and, upon his strict father's death, becomes obsessed with them but later, realizing how his father sacrificed for him. He chooses a nobler path with the help of four adorable and bossy angels straight out of a sappy greeting card and take charge of his life.
The Maltese Mummy by Tina Robbins
As the founders of the Chicagoland Detective Agency, a haiku-writing girl and a boy with a talking dog have more than enough cases on their hands (and paws) when a friend vanishes, a mummy's amulet disappears, and an evil scientist stalks human brains and hearts. This is the second volume in the Chicagoland Detective Agency graphic-novel series with teen sleuths Megan and Raf and their talking-dog partner, Bradley. Don't forget to read the first volume in the Chicagoland Detective Agency graphic-novel series, The Drained Brains Caper.
Page by Paige by Laura Lee Gulledge
Paige Turner has just moved to New York with her family, and she's having some trouble adjusting to the big city. In the pages of her sketchbook, she tries to make sense of her new life, including trying out her secret identity: artist. As she makes friends and starts to explore the city, she slowly brings her secret identity out into the open, a process that is equal parts terrifying and rewarding.
