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 really loved this book and very highly recommend reading this book as well as the other books by Raina Telgemeier! Raina is a very talented comic writer in my opinion. All of her books are comics I believe. You should really read this book.

              Must say, loved it! This author has a cool way of writing: this is a comic book! So when two girls have to move because one of them has a breathing disorder, they aren't quite sure about the foggy town. But a day of the dead celebration brings them to recognize their lost loved ones and to bring them out of the shell and come to love the town!

                Ghost is not a scary book but kinda a halloween book or just a pinch of religous book. CeCE moved to a new a town and everything there was about ghost and she thought the village people where crazy until she took a hike.

                      Catrina and Maya are moving because Maya is sick, but they find ghosts. This is a really good book because the plot is good and the characters have a lot of connections with people in real life. Many people have to move. It also has some things about Mexican culture, which , in my opinion, is very interesting.
