The Haunting of Sunshine Girl (The Haunting of Sunshine Girl #1) by Paige McKenzie and Alyssa B. Sheinmel


Goodreads Summary:

Something freaky’s going on with Sunshine’s new house… there’s the chill that wraps itself around her bones, the giggling she can hear in the dead of night, and then the strange shadows that lurk in her photographs. But the more weird stuff that happens, the less her mom believes her. Sunshine’s always had a quirky affiliation with the past, but this time, history is getting much too close for comfort…

If there is something, or someone, haunting her house, what do they want? And what will they do if Sunshine can’t help them?

As things become more frightening and dangerous, and the giggles she hears turn to sobs and screams, Sunshine has no choice but to accept what she is, face the test before her and save her mother from a fate worse than death.

The first in a frighteningly good new series based on the popular YouTube sensation The Haunting of Sunshine Girl Network, created by Paige McKenzie.

My Thoughts:

I loved the cover and the title so I bought the book. I have never seen the Youtube show. Okay so Sunshine is adopted because she was left at the hospital, and her mom was a nurse there. Sunshine develops the ability to interact with ghosts on her 16th birthday. Of course her house is haunted by ghosts. Two ghosts to be exact. One ghost is a little girl who drowned in the bathtub, the other ghost is far more sinister. Sunshine’s mom even becomes possessed by this evil ghost. Sunshine can’t be possessed because she’s special. The story was okay. I wasn’t in love with it, but I didn’t hate it either. It was average for a paranormal horror movie, I could definitely see this playing out on screen, which is probably why it has a huge (apparently according to the book cover) YouTube following. It’s not a great book, but I do love horror, and YA horror seems rare. Overall MEH.
