Ghosts by Raina Telgemeier, 240 pages
A poignant story about Cat and her little sister, Maya, who are moving because Maya is ill with cystic fibrosis. Everyone in their new town is ghost-obsessed. At first, Cat thinks people are just crazy, but she soon realizes that the ghosts are real. Unfortunately, Maya becomes seriously ill after their first encounter and although everyone tries to convince Cat that the ghosts are friendly and fun, she feels that she needs to protect her sister from the ghosts. This book has funny, scary, and sweet parts. Overall, it’s a very good book. Unsurprisingly, many grade school girls are huge fans of Telgemeier’s work. Although, graphic novels are not my first choice of type of book, I will always read Telgemeier’s books myself.
