Lola: A Ghost Story


Jesse and his family are visiting their family in the Philippines and attending Grandma Lola's funeral. Like his grandmother, Jesse sees things: demons, monsters, and his dead cousin JonJon. Jesse comes to terms with his visions but doesn't necessarily accept them. The gorgeous sepia-toned illustrations are a perfect match for Torres' story. Check out J. Torres' blog! Grade 6+
