Summary (From the publisher):

Ghost World follows the adventures of two teenage girls, Enid and Becky, who are best friends and are facing the prospect of growing up, and more importantly, apart. Both are naturalistic and nostalgic for the way things used to be in their lives. In Ghost World, Clowes carves out a layered narrative out of the daily existence of these two girls and in the process, turns them into fully-realized young women.
