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.

            this book was very sweet and emotional. i loved that it had romance, sadness, and suspense all rolled into one book. it was written very well and was nowhere near being boring. this author should be proud

                I love this book! I had recently read this and it was really good. Catrina and her family move to the coast of Northern California due to her little sister, Maya. Maya has Cystic Fibrosis. It affects breathing and digestion. Cat thinks that they're moving mainly for Maya since she won't be having fast food in California. When they finally arrive at their new home, Maya really enjoys it, but not Cat. She misses her friends and wants to go back. When the lights suddenly go out, Cat takes Maya for a walk. Maya finds a small passageway that leads to a scary forest. They end up on a high rooftop by the ocean. They keep searching around and find other amazing things. One day, Cat and Maya go on a ghost hunt and finds many of them. They seem to haunt Cat and Maya. They circle around Maya because she is holding their favorite drink. But when she accidently drops it, the ghosts hurt Maya. Cat quickly brings Maya back home but she as to be connected to a breathing tank now. THouhgout the book, many exciting things happen, but there are still sad times, like this one. I would recommend this book to people who liked all of the books that Raina Telgemeier wrote as well as graphic novels. I really enjoyed reading this book. It really hooked me into finishing it, and I did.
