This poetry collection is a personal and political necessity for 2017. Nicole

Anyone who has ever had to relocate as a kid can likely identify with Cat’s frustration when the family has to move away from all of her friends and the only home she has known.  To make matters worse, they are moving from beautiful, sunny Southern California to a colder, oceanside town in Northern California - where not only the climate is unfamiliar, but so is the prevalence of the ghosts who see their new town, Bahia de la Luna, as the perfect place to hang out!  Raina Telgemeier’s artwork and writing is lovely and engaging as she explores Cat’s and Maya’s approach to the ghosts, Maya’s illness, the big move, and the approach of the Dia de los Muertos celebration in their own ways.The beauty of it is that anyone, really, can relate to this story of family and the bonds of love that extend beyond the here and now.  [Lydia]
