This is a powerful book for young readers, perfect for this time of year!
I love that this book takes place in a city called Bahía de la Luna, because Luna is our last name. This is where ghosts live, so I thought it would be great to make some delicious ghost milkshakes to celebrate the release of this new book, and so the Boo-nilla milkshake was born!
