Ghosts - Raina Telgemeier, Raina Telgemeier

I read this book after reading an article on the lack of diversity of main characters in children's books. While the article focused mostly on younger kids books, I feel like this one falls in the spectrum.

 

Touching on Day of the Dead, ofrendas, cystic fibrosis, moving to a new city, and a tiny bit of white washing the mother went through as a kid. 

 

I really enjoyed this book. It's a really quick read, and surprisingly emotional - Much deeper than I was expecting.

 

Definitely recommend this book for the younger audience. (Middle grade)
