Set against the atmospheric backdrop of coastal Northern California, Raina has masterfully created a moving and insightful story about the power of family and friendship, and how it gives us the courage to do what we never thought possible.
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. Adventurous Maya is determined to meet one, but the more anxious Cat wants nothing to do with them. As Día De Los Muertos approaches, the time of year when ghosts reunite with their loved ones, Cat must figure out how to put aside her fears for her sister’s sake—and her own.
