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.

            Thank you, artpanda. Now many other people have a really good idea on what ghosts is about! This can really connect to a lot of people because I know there are people with cystic fibrosis.

                    This graphic novel is cute and heart warming. I love the culture, Day of the Dead, in the book because I have always found it captivating. I think Maya is brave to be able to smile and be happy even though she is sick. Overall the story was interesting.
