Summary
J. Torres and Elbert Or celebrate 10 years of Lola: AGhost Story, the critically-acclaimed graphic novel that explores family, griefand Filipino folklore in an all-new edition that includes a revised ending andupdated illustrations.

Jesse didn't really knowhis Lola (the Tagalog word for grandmother), but he remembers that she tried todrown him as a baby. Strange stories surround Lola: she had visions, she foughtoff monsters straight out of Filipino folklore, and, according to some, she mayhave even seen ghosts.

Now Jesse is strugglingwith the same visions Lola had, but Lola's not around anymore, and the rest ofhis family are too tied up in their own personal demons to help. Personal demonsthat Lola might have helped with, if she were still alive. As Jesse explores hisnew abilities, he realizes that he might be the one who needs to step into thatrole-and that helping others might just help him, too.
