Summer of the Mariposas by Guadalupe Garcia McCall

Odilia Garza and her four sisters find a dead body floating in the river.  The five sisters decide that they should return the man to his family in Mexico.  After they deliver the dead body, they set off on a journey to get to their grandmother's house where they hope to find their father.  Along the way, they encounter many beings from Mexican folklore including witches and the evil chupacabra.  In this story, the girls must be careful what they wish for because the answers they got revealed a secret they might have liked to have kept hidden.
This story was a great one about sibling relationships especially in adversity.  I recommend reading this good read.
