Ghosts By Raina Telgemeier
Genre Graphic Novel
Reviewed by Jabriana G.
My overall opinion of this book is that it’s a really interesting and wonderful book.The plot of this book is that Cat has a little sister named Maya, and they move to Bahia de la Luna because of Maya’s Cystic Fibrosis. They both meet a boy who tells them about the ghosts in the town.
My favorite part in this book is when Maya meets an eight-year-old ghost named Jose, and she tells him,”Jose, if I die, Cat will be all alone. She’s terrible at making friends.” This is my favorite part of this book because even though Maya knows she might die sooner than later it shows that she’s not afraid, but that she’s afraid of what might happen to her sister after she’s gone. I would recommend this book to people who like Graphic Novels, and possibly someone who is struggling from moving from somewhere old to somewhere new.This book is also really good to read if you like stories that involve Dia De Los Muertos or ghosts. I think that someone might enjoy this book as the weather gets colder and windier, so this is a book that’s perfect to read in Autumn, or during Halloween and Dia De Los Muertos.
