Lola by Elbert Or

"Jesse sees dead people, monsters, demons, and lots of other things that go bump in the night that no one else can see. No one except his ailing grandmother - a woman who used her visions to help those living in her small town... the same rural community in all the scary stories Jesse's heard as a child. Man-eating ogres in trees. Farmhouses haunted by wraiths. Even pigs possessed by the devil. Upon his grandmother's passing, Jesse has no choice but to face his demons and whatever else might be awaiting him at grandma's house."

This author's actually coming soon to Sitka, just so you know, and I believe this is the book he's exhibiting most. Just for that reason, it'd probably be nice to pick up a copy and get to know it. Being a graphic novel, it's an incredibly quick read--I finished it in about fifteen to twenty minutes. The design was really quite good; it wasn't manga style, it was more simplistic and clean, which made for really nice reading. The actual time period and the events of the story were short, but it was definitely enjoyable to read. Not a bad use of twenty minutes, and the story, while not exactly managing to creep me out, made a pretty interesting ghost story. You could check it out soon at Kettleson or maybe Blatchley; they're being ordered.
