#Review #Giveaway of Ghosts by @goraina @Scholastic

 
 
Catrina and her family are moving to the coast of Northern California because her little sister, Maya, is sick. Cat isn't happy about leaving her friends for Bahía de la Luna, but Maya has cystic fibrosis and will benefit from the cool, salty air that blows in from the sea. As the girls explore their new home, a neighbor lets them in on a secret: There are ghosts in Bahía de la Luna. Maya is determined to meet one, but Cat wants nothing to do with them. As the time of year when ghosts reunite with their loved ones approaches, Cat must figure out how to put aside her fears for her sister's sake - and her own.

This is an amazing book about ghosts and its comic form AND in COLOR! So that was great. Its about this family that moves to a new town.  They meet new people and make new friends.  The main  character named Cat was afraid of ghosts but then she meets some and become friends.  This was a great book about learning not to be afraid of the unknown.  That you might just make some new friends from it.  Cat was such a great character.  No matter what happened she always held her temper which is something that I need to work on.  

The story was amazing it was fast paced and I finished this book in just under two hours.  The book was colorful and I loved the idea about the ghosts.  This would be a great book for higher elementary to lower middle grade readers.  I at 12 enjoyed it very much!
