We are welcoming a brand new teen reviewer today. Mary is here to tell us about a title many of our teens will be excited about:
Ghosts by Raina Telgemeier
I had a dastardly cold for quite it came back. I not like to read when I'm either give me a headache me associate books with feeling pretty darn gross. But then I remembered I had gotten this graphic novel at the National Book Festival, and figured that I could handle mostly looking at pictures made for, well, a younger demographic than me.
I was not disappointed. It was just like watching one of my old Monstober Disney Channel Original Movies, like Twitches, or all four Halloweentown know the ones. graphic novel gave me all the of October within a short time span.
The book itself is fairly hard to it is short enough to finish in an hour or two. But, that doesn't mean I can't try... It follows around a girl who has to move because her younger sister is fairly sick. But, the place they move to is inhabited by, you guessed it, ghosts! The story focuses on Day of the Dead celebrations as opposed to Halloween which I was happy to see because it's something different from many books I’ve read.
I'd highly recommend that if you want to feel like a kid again !
