Anya´s Ghost by Vera Brosgol.

 

Of all the things Anya expected to find at the bottom of an old well, a new friend wasn´t 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 dead one- is just what she needs.

But Anya´s new BFF isn´t kidding about the “forever” part…
