Cat and Maya have moved to a new town on the coast that is supposed to be better for Maya’s cystic fibrosis. Cat misses home and her friends and doesn’t like the spooky town of Bahía de la Luna with its obsession with ghosts. Every year there is a huge Dia de los Muertos festival where the ghosts come back and mingle with the living. Cat is also dealing with new friends at school and a boy. Plus there is the fact that she hasn’t told anyone about Maya.
I love all of Raina Telgemeier’s books and this one is no exception. I received a copy at BEA 2016 and couldn’t wait to read it. It is sweet and funny and heartfelt. I loved the relationship of Cat and Maya, they seem so much like sisters and so real. I also really enjoyed the Dia de los Muertos information as that is not something that gets written about very often. The ghosts were a fun touch as well. Another winner!
