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.

          Another Raina Telgemeier graphic novel, titled Ghosts, it's easy to see what the theme of this book is going to be. Cat and her sister Maya are moving from their sunny hometown to a gloomy bayside city called Bahia de la Luna. The reason for all this is because of Maya. Maya is a sickly child, born with a condition called Cystic Fibrosis. Cat's parents believe that the salty sea air will be good for Maya. While exploring the new town, they meet a boy named Carlos (who is also their neighbor) who later takes them on a ghost tour and shows the girls that ghosts are not fairy tales. The cold (and the ghosts) give Maya a breathing attack, landing her in bed with a breathing tube for a week. How does the story pan out? Read Ghosts to see. I would recommend this book to any fans of Raina Telgemeier.

            I chose this book because I like comic books because I understand who is talking and who is not

              Cat just moved to a coastal town in California, with the name of Bahia De Luna. Cats parents claimed they had to move due to her fathers new job, but the underlying reason was something more frightening. Maya, Catrinas sister has a medical condition called cystic fibrosis. This condition affects how she breathes and eats... and it's not getting better, so they went to a new town, it's salty air hopefully helping Mayas lungs. But, just as Cat thinks life can't get any worse she and Maya discover that Bahia De Luna has... GHOSTS!!! Join Cat as she battles the constant terror of her sisters condition, friendship problems, and, of course, the new addition of ghosts in her life. Ghosts brings culture, friendship, and the power of family all into one book creating a beautiful story of life. I absolutely loved this book, and with it's amazing stories and characters I'm sure you will too!!

                This Raina Telgemeier book was also a really good one. It was well written and the plot was really interesting. I would recommend it to fans of Be Prepared and Invisible Emmie.

                      Catrinas (cat) family is moving from southern California to the coast of northern California mostly because her sister Maya, she has Cystic Fibrosis (a genetic disease that causes mucus to build up in the lungs, making it difficult to breathe) the air there will help her lungs. While Cat & Maya are exploring they find an old arcade in the beach and meet a boy name Carlos who tells them about a ghost tour he gives. Cat rushes Maya away (cause she kinda is freaked out about ghost) when the family goes to have dinner at there new neighbors - it turns out that's where Carlos lives. Carlos takes them on the ghost tour later on in the book,what will the girls discover? And will Cat continue being scared by ghost? Read the book to find out! Raina Telgemeier is an amazing author so make sure to check out all her books! Recommended for 10+ Thanks for reading -Ajg16's reviews
