9.13.19 {BOOKflix Friday} Raina Telgemeier

Today is {BOOKflix Friday!}

Few things can draw a reader to a new book like a book trailer can.

Get the popcorn ready.


Raina Telgemeier is a student favorite. Every year, her books are some of the most-read books in my library. Let’s have a look.
Fun Fact: I have a signed copy of Smile.
Sisters is the follow up to Smile. This is another autobiographical story.
Drama actually came before Sisters. If you like theater or acting you’ll especially like this one.
Finally: Ghosts. Are you brave enough to read it?

About This Book

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.

Raina Telgemeier 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.
