The Sad Ghost Club

Lize Meddings

27th January 2021

There was a lot I could relate to in this sweet little graphic novel. The indecision and almost crippling anxiety about whether to go out or not. Not knowing whether you're really making friends in the 'right' way (whatever that means). Depression and how it just keeps you down. Feeling like the only awkward one at the party. [Honestly, a lot of this just fits into general anxiety, and it was conveyed quite well here.]

The artwork was also sweet and engaging, without being too distracting from the story.

However (I think you saw this coming), I don't feel like I can rate this one too highly? Perhaps it's simply because this brought up a lot of what I experience myself, and I found it a little confronting, but overall I didn't really feel like this story was doing anything particularly new, or imparting information I didn't already know. I honestly think that this book may be helpful to people - I would say particularly people in their first year of University? As the characters here seemed to fit into that demographic for me - but, for me, it just fell a little flat.

Now, if I could give this to first-year-Uni Beth, that might be a different thing. I have a feeling she would really love to read this.

Overall, not one for me, but still enjoyable.

6/10 sad little ghosties.

I received a review copy of this book from Hachette in exchange for an honest review. All thoughts and feelings are my own.
