Eve and the Lost Ghost Family is a deadpan-funny YA graphic novel about Eve, a 14-year-old on the verge of becoming her own person, and her quarrelsome parents.
Killed in a car accident one night, they begin their wandering in the afterlife – only to discover they’re simply reliving their life in an eternal cycle.
Meanwhile, Eve becomes drawn to a girl whose house she’s haunting and finds they actually share the same taste in music and poetry. Now, how do you scare the living daylights out of your soulmate?
And there’s the small matter of looking for her equally-dead boyfriend who’s somewhere out there – wherever “out there” is in the Great Beyond.
Eve and the Lost Ghost Family will captivate you with its quirky characters, its innovative blend of poetry and comic book art and its unique spin on growing-up pains – first love, dealing with meddlesome parents, doubts about self-identity and, of course, the answer the ultimate question: What happens after death?
