From Raina Telgemeier, the #1 New York Times bestselling, multiple Eisner Award-winning author of Smile, Drama, and Sisters! Catrina and her family are moving to the coast of Northern California because her little sister, Maya, is sick. Cat isn't happy about leaving her friends for Bahía de la Luna, but Maya has cystic fibrosis and will benefit from the cool, salty air that blows in from the sea. As the girls explore their new home, a neighbor lets them in on a secret: There are ghosts in Bahía de la Luna. Maya is determined to meet one, but Cat wants nothing to do with them. As the time of year when ghosts reunite with their loved ones approaches, Cat must figure out how to put aside her fears for her sister's sake - and her own. Raina Telgemeier has masterfully created a moving and insightful story about the power of family and friendship, and how it gives us the courage to do what we never thought possible.

i read this book to fulfil a goal read a book set on or around halloween. this goal made me super nervous since i can't handle scary books really well. this was a children's graphic novel, so i figured i couldn't get to off track. it's actually really sweet. if you liked the movie Cocco you would like this one. it cebrates the day of the dead and our ansestors. it really was a nice story a very quick read.

this book was really exciting to read as it had many twists and emotions. the title really lives up to its name, and I believe that Raina Telgemeir really knocked this one out of the park.

Raina Telgemeiers' Ghosts is a one of a kind story about a girl, Cat learning about her heritage and adapting to a new life. In this new neighborhood that Cat has moved to, everyone seems to be talking about the "day of the dead" and the ghosts who frequently came to visit which is a bit alarming at first. However, with the help of her new friends, her sister and her family, Cat discovers a new side of her that she had never known about. Ghosts is a great, short little read that will definitely brighten your day. As well, personally I know that Ghosts is also great to take anywhere and everywhere to read. Thus, I know as a matter of fact that you won't regret reading Ghosts! Rate: 4/5 stars.

I haven't read much by way of graphic novels (which is probably a little weird, since I make so many comics), and this is a perfect one to begin with if you want to get into the swing of the genre. The story is touching without getting sappy, there's an interesting mystery/supernatural element that's really not creepy, and the art style fits the story and characters perfectly. All around an excellent read, and one I would highly recommend.

I found this story uplifting. It brought a happy feeling with it and one of family love.

While is a young graphic novel (tween age), as an adult I found it uplifting, warm and a happy read. Maya's smile and enthusiasm for Life is contagious.

A really lovely story.

After a sudden move to the foggy North of California, Cat and her sister Maya are shocked to learn about their new town's ghostly inhabitants! Don't worry though, these spirits are friends...and family!

Cat’s family has just moved to Bahía de la Luna, leaving behind their life in southern California. Cat is sad to be separated from her friends, but the coastal weather will be better for her sister’s health. Maya has cystic fibrosis, and the cool seaside air may help her struggling lungs. Bahía de la Luna turns out to be haunted, and the residents of the town take living alongside ghosts for granted. This terrifies Cat, but Maya is determined to meet a ghost for herself. Unfortunately for Cat, their new neighbour Carlos knows all the best spots as the local tour guide, including the abandoned mission. In order to help her sister, Cat will have to face up to her own fears.

ok... i decided to do this book for my book recommendation... and here's my summary...

The book, Ghosts, by Raina Telgemeier is about an 11 year old girl named Catrina, or Cat, who is unhappy to leave her friends behind for Bahía de La Luna, California. Cat’s sister, Maya, is sick with cystic fibrosis. It is a disease with breathing and digesting with no cure to fix it, so their family moves to Bahía where the ocean helps her with her breathing. Cat and Maya are out on a walk, when they bump into a boy named Carlos who lets out an old secret: there are ghosts in their town. Cat wants nothing to do with them, but Maya sets her heart out to meet one. Carlos agrees to take them out on a ghost tour and Maya finally gets her chance to meet the ghosts. Then, something goes horribly wrong on their trip and Maya is quickly rushed to the hospital. Cat is now terrified that the ghosts will take her sister away. But when the time the ghosts reunite with their loved ones comes, Cat must learn to set aside her fears for her sister’s sake and for her own.

No, girls. November first. It’s a day to welcome back the spirits of the loved ones we’ve lost. I haven’t celebrated in years
