Cat’s family has just moved to Bahía de la Luna, leaving behind their life in southern California. Cat is sad to be separated from her friends, but the coastal weather will be better for her sister’s health. Maya has cystic fibrosis, and the cool seaside air may help her struggling lungs. Bahía de la Luna turns out to be haunted, and the residents of the town take living alongside ghosts for granted. This terrifies Cat, but Maya is determined to meet a ghost for herself. Unfortunately for Cat, their new neighbour Carlos knows all the best spots as the local tour guide, including the abandoned mission. In order to help her sister, Cat will have to face up to her own fears.
ok... i decided to do this book for my book recommendation... and here's my summary...
The book, Ghosts, by Raina Telgemeier is about an 11 year old girl named Catrina, or Cat, who is unhappy to leave her friends behind for Bahía de La Luna, California. Cat’s sister, Maya, is sick with cystic fibrosis. It is a disease with breathing and digesting with no cure to fix it, so their family moves to Bahía where the ocean helps her with her breathing. Cat and Maya are out on a walk, when they bump into a boy named Carlos who lets out an old secret: there are ghosts in their town. Cat wants nothing to do with them, but Maya sets her heart out to meet one. Carlos agrees to take them out on a ghost tour and Maya finally gets her chance to meet the ghosts. Then, something goes horribly wrong on their trip and Maya is quickly rushed to the hospital. Cat is now terrified that the ghosts will take her sister away.
