Ghosts by Raina Telgemeier is a graphic novel about two sisters. Catrina and her family are moving to the coast of Northern California because her little sister, Maya is sick. Maya has cystic fibrosis and the cool sea air could make her feel better.
Catrina doesn’t like moving Bahia de la Luna because she will miss her friends. The town has a secret. There are ghosts in Bahia de la Luna. Maya wants to meet a ghost, but Catrina doesn’t want to meet one. At the end of the year, when the ghosts meet their loved ones, will Catrina put aside her fear of ghosts? Will Maya make ghost friends? This novel also explores the relationship between two sisters and their fears.
This is my first time reading a graphic novel and I loved the beautiful illustrations. There was so much detail in each picture. I appreciated the sinuous drawings of the ghosts. The story itself had a logical ending, but the series of events were captivating. This is my first Raina Telgemeier novel and will definitely not be my last.
