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.
