Image result for ghosts telgemeier

Loved this one so much.  Maya's family moves to a new town in the hopes that it will be better for Cat's health.  Cat has Cystic Fibrosis.  The town has a very strong Latino heritage and is especially in tune with the Day of the Dead and local ghosts.  Maya isn't very comfortable about it, especially when some ghosts - who take in oxygen from living people around them - inadvertently cause Cat to have a health issue.  Eventually though Maya comes around and starts to enjoy the culture and her new friends.

I loved the tie in with Cystic Fibrosis and the Day of the Dead.  This is a strong book.
