The Haunting of Sunshine Girl by Paige McKenzie

In that place where you're more asleep than awake any more, I hear something else. A phrase uttered in a child's voice, no more than a whisper: Night Night.

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 mum 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 @goodreads



That was a creepy little ghost story. I liked it a lot. Sunshine and her mother move from Texas to Washington so that Sunshine's mom (Kat) can work at a better position in the town's hospital.

I loved how the author described them first coming to the house, how all of the houses were so quiet and no one in the yards, no kids. Then they get to the house and Sunshine had a weird feeling about it. All of that pulled me right in.

Sunshine starts school not long after that and becomes friends with Nolan. I loved his character in the book, he's not a love interest, he's something else :)

Sunshine is upset the school doesn't have a photography department because she likes to use "old school" cameras, you know.. with REAL film. :) She has a couple of rolls she wanted to develop to see if she caught a ghost from her house on them. That's all I'm saying about that. She sends them to her best friend Ashley back home. There is a really reliable place that Sunshine wants her to get them developed for her. I'm not going to tell you what they reveal!

The story moves on at a good pace and we find out more about the ghost that his haunting the house. Actually, we find out a lot about what's going on in that house. It's way more than I ever thought!

I think this story is a brilliant take on ghosts and other creatures. I thoroughly enjoyed it and look forward to the next one!

FYI: Sunshine is not what she seems to be....... :)
