Sheets: a graphic novel review

Sheets is a graphic novel about a girl named Marjorie whose mother has died and father rarely leaves his room. Marjorie runs her parents’ laundry business after school. It is struggling and a sneaky man is trying to take the building from them to start a yoga resort.
Meanwhile, a ghost named Wendell is having trouble adjusting to the Land of Ghosts and begins to visit the laundry at night where he builds blanket forts and otherwise messes up the store. He attempts to help Marjorie, but things don’t go as planned.
This story was so creative and fun. The Land of Ghosts comes with its own rules and reckoning, and Wendell prefers the world of humans.
We also get to see how Marjorie deals with having to be the business owner and deal with normal school drama in the wake of her mother’s death.
Wendell’s story provides levity against the gravity of Marjorie’s. I definitely recommend this book for adults and young adults.
