Summary

More
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 find new courage—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.

About the Author

Some author-illustrators invent their stories from imagination, others draw on their own lives. Award-winning graphic novelist Raina Telgemeier has done both. Raina loved comics as a child growing up in San Francisco. Her favorites were Calvin and Hobbes and For Better or for Worse. She began creating her own comics about that time, realizing that she "liked putting pictures and words together to tell stories."

When Raina was in sixth grade, she fell and knocked out her teeth—an accident that required braces, years of surgery, and lots of awkward smiles. Mocked and teased by her classmates, she withdrew into her love of drawing, eventually finding friends in high school who could appreciate her artistic gifts. The comic Smile was born out of a need to process that experience by getting it down on paper. A few years later her graphic novel Sisters, also autobiographical, won an Eisner Award.

Raina Telgemeier is one of the most popular illustrator-storytellers working today, with credits on DC Comics, X-Men: Misfits, and The Baby-Sitters Club, for which she is the series illustrator. In 2016, she published Ghosts, about a girl and her family moving to a new town, where she sees spirits and celebrates the Day of the Dead.
