Ghost Roast delivers a paranormal adventure full of first crushes, lost histories, and the impossible task of fitting in when your dad is a professional ghosthunter. A stand-alone YA graphic novel from authors Shawneé and Shawnelle Gibbs and artist Emily Cannon!
For as long as she can remember, Chelsea Grant has tried everything she can think of to distance herself from the disastrous damage her father does to her social life. It's not easy to shake her reputation as Ghost Girl when Dad keeps advertising his business as a "paranormal removal expert" in big, bold, loud letters all over New Orleans!
This year, Chelsea's all grown up, attending one of the most prestigious high schools in the city, and she's finally made friends with the popular crowd. Things are looking up—until a night on the town backfires spectacularly, landing her in hot water at home. Her punishment? Working for her dad at Paranormal Removal Services. All. Summer.
Worst of all, her new job reveals an unexpected secret she has to keep: While Dad hunts ghosts with his own DIY tech, Chelsea can actually see them. And when she meets Oliver, a friendly spirit, at the fancy mansion her dad is getting a handsome fee to exorcize, she realizes she has to save his after-life, even if it risks everything her father's worked for.

Most original graphic novel I’ve read in…forever.” — Kwame Alexander, #1 New York Times best-selling author of The Crossover
“Not only a visual delight, it's a wonderfully executed remix of the Classic Southern Gothic ghost story… A fresh take on a tried and true genre… Beautiful, romantic, exciting, and essential.” — John Jennings, #1 New York Times bestselling, Eisner Award-winning illustrator of Kindred: A Graphic Novel Adaptation
'Bursting with humor and charm… An observant, page-turning tale of teenage identity, historical intrigue, and paranormal romance. It is sharp, funny, and nuanced… Equal measures fun and thoughtful, a book I could recommend to just about everyone.' — Jen Wang, New York Times bestselling, Eisner Award-winning creator of The Prince and the Dressmaker
