Faculty Review: Ghosts by Raina Telgemeier

Image from goodreads.com

Catrina and her family move to a purportedly haunted town on the coast of Northern California for the health of her younger sister, Maya. Although Cat wants nothing to do with ghosts, Maya is determined to meet one. As Dia de los Muertos approaches, Cat must figure out how to overcome her fears for both their sakes. Although Ghosts is a cute, fun read, some may take exception with the depiction of Hispanic culture and the relationship with ghosts. Nevertheless, this title would be a good addition to a middle grade or early high school collection. You would like this book if you like… Mercury by Hope Larson or Flutter by G. J. Linko.
