A unique and spirited graphic novel reminiscent of the works of Raina Telgemeier and Neil Gaiman!

Katia and Victoria are sisters and scholarship students at a private boarding school. While Victoria tries to fit in, Katia is unapologetic about her quirks, even though their classmates tease her. After a big fight, Katia runs away from school. And when Victoria goes looking for her, she accidentally tumbles into the underworld of a nearby graveyard. It's inhabited by ghosts and a man named Nikola, who's preparing a sinister spell that's missing one key ingredient. Victoria teams up with adorable Little Ghost and Nikola's kindhearted son, and together they search for Katia - who is in danger of becoming Nikola's next victim!

Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Katia and Victoria are at boarding school for the first time after being homeschooled for years, and Victoria is determined to fit in. Katia, however, has no interest in being normal and runs away into a blizzard after the girls have a fight. When Victoria follows her, the two find themselves in an underworld of ghosts and ghouls and on the run from Nikola, a man determined to work an evil magic spell. There are good bones in this ghostly tale, though Terry doesn't add quite enough depth to fully bring the story to life. Katia and Victoria, in particular, are a bit too flat for readers to completely connect with, but their struggles at school are very believable, and the danger they face from Nikola and the ghosts is thrilling enough to keep readers engaged. Terry's soft colors and bold lines bring the emotions of her story to life and will appeal to the eyes of readers who enjoy Raina Telgemeier's or Ben Hatke's work. A decent purchase for large comic collections.--Wildsmith, Snow Copyright 2017 Booklist"

Publisher's Weekly Review: "Previously homeschooled, Victoria Trost is desperate to fit in at her new boarding school, but that's unlikely with her younger sister, Katia, there-Katia's eccentric, carefree nature leaves Victoria ostracized. After an embarrassing few days (and a blizzard), Victoria meets Little Ghost, a polite, friendly specter. Like the girls, Little Ghost doesn't fit in with his kind, though he has a friend in Modie, a patchwork boy being kept alive by his father, Nikola. But that requires the life essence of a young person, and Nikola has his sights on Katia. Terry's debut graphic novel is a moody, introspective story spiked with supernatural suspense: Nikola's longing to keep his son alive provides poignant context for his misguided actions, and Terry's muted watercolors and friendly cartooning style soften the plot's sharp edges (namely that children are dying so Modie can live). That the afterlife can be as complicated as regular life will strike a wryly funny note with young outcasts and loners, but Terry never loses sight of the idea that even misfits can find community by being themselves.
