From Goodreads:
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.

I was so excited about Ghosts that I wanted to pre-order it. However, I already have way to many books, so I put it on hold at the library.

It was released on September 13, and 15 days later, I still hadn’t gotten it.

So I bought it.

I read it in about half and hour and loved it. The colors in the art were amazing and the story was interesting. I particularly enjoyed the relationship between the sisters. When Cat was scolded for forgetting Maya’s medicine, I knew exactly how she felt. Learning about the history of the town and its atmosphere was perfect. Mixing supernatural into the storyline was fantastic. I loved it!
