Overview

Ghosts by Raina Telgemeier


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.

Ghosts was an amazing book. It was just so magical. Here is a brief summary: Cat's little sister has cystic fibrosis, and there's no cure. So Maya and Cat and her family are moving to Bahia de la Lunia, where a neighbor tells them there are ghosts in the town. One day, the ghosts try to become friends with Maya, and she plays along. But then the ghosts steal Mayas breath, and then she needs breathing tube. It's such a wonderful book. Would recommend to fans of Big Nate, Diary of a Wimpy Kid, and books like that.

The book is about Cat, an ordinary girl, I'm guessing she's in fifth grade, and it's not easy for her to make friends but she does it. Her little sister, Maya, has cystic fibrosis. This book includes courage and determination.

Book Review By: Sarah Monahan The book Ghosts by Raina Telgemeier is fantastic. In this graphic novel you have the main characters Catrina and Maya the sisters. They are moving to Northern California because Maya has an illness and Cat (nickname) isn’t to happy about it. Come see what happens next! Cat isn’t happy about leaving her friends from Southern California for Bahia de la Luna, a small town in Northern California. The reason they have to move is because Maya a.k.a Cat’s little sister has an illness called Cystic Fibrosis. The illness affects your lungs with mucus. They moved across the street from the ocean so the cool salty air helps with her lungs. Next, they go exploring the neighborhood and meet one of their neighbors he tell the girls that there are ghosts in Bahia de la Luna. Maya is determined to meet a ghost but on the other hand Cat wants nothing to do with them. As the Day of the Dead comes rolling around and their loved ones come along, Cat has to get rid of her fears for her sister’s sake. Hope you get to join in and read the rest of the book! Graphic Novels are my favorite type of books because they show amazing pictures of what’s happening so you can visualize it in your head but yet they don’t give that much detail as other books do. Out of all the other Graphic Novels i’ve read the series by Raina Telgemeier are by far the best. Ghosts in particular i like the most because in my opinion i think it gives more detail and talks about real life places and other things so it has kind of facts in the book. As the narrator writes the book she makes it funny and more relatable feelings for kids my age. For example on page 6 it states ‘’Mom and Dad are dragging us to this gloomy place, Bahia de la Luna’’. Overall, i would 100% recommend Ghosts for anyone, especially kids my age because they can relate. You have to see what happens during the story whether or not ghosts show up!

Cat's little sister Maya has Cystic Fibrosis and everyone hopes that the climate in Bahía de la Luna will help her breathing. Cat is sad to leave her friends behind and she isn't sure what to expect when everyone in town starts talking about ghosts. With the Day of the Dead approaching, all of Bahía de la Luna is preparing to welcome the town's otherworldly guests. Cat is afraid of the ghosts while Maya is determined to meet one. Their search for new friends, ghostly and otherwise, will bring Cat and Maya closer together. It will also introduce them to the wonders to be found in their new town--especially when it comes to el dia de los muertos in Ghosts (2016) by Raina Telgemeier. At this point in her career, Raina Telgemeier hardly needs an introduction. Her latest standalone graphic novel is another charming production. The detailed artwork and semi-fantastical plot demonstrate that Telgemeier is at the top of her game as an author and illustrator. Stunning artwork brings Bahía de la Luna to life complete with intricate Day of the Dead spreads highlighting various aspects of this cultural phenomenon. A heartwarming story (with a diverse case of characters!) combines well with Telgemeier's signature artwork to create a satisfying read. Add this one to your to read list now. Ghosts is going to be big.
