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.

Ghosts doesn't have the realism of either Smile or Sisters, but it doesn't manage to reach the charming humor of Drama, either. There isn't much humor aside from brief moments.

Unfortunately, this book doesn't hit hard emotionally either. The family relationships and characters here aren't developed enough, making this book ultimately unmemorable/5.

Maiklem is not alone in resorting to the river for salvation as much as salvage * Spectator * A beautifully written memoir of one woman's relationship with the sacred Thames and the ghosts of its past.

Lara Maiklem's book on mudlarking is as deep and as rich as the Thames and its treasures/5(). Maiklem is following in the footsteps of the mudlarks, ghosts of the past who left their trace back in the 18th and 19th centuries. Back then, being a mudlark was an occupation chosen out of necessity, and most often due to great poverty.

Work conditions were harsh, but some people had no choice but to wade through the muddy banks of the Thames. Ghosts shows two sisters' different reactions to the supernatural, and the feelings of both girls are treated with respect.
