The Haunting of Sunshine Girl
McKenzie, Paige. The Haunting os Sunshine Girl. NY: Weinstein Books, c2015. 296 pages. Book 1
Kat Griffith found a baby, abandoned by someone, and immediately fell in love with her. Now that baby, who she named Sunshine, is sixteen and they are moving from sunny Texas to gloomy Washington, where it rains a lot. Not only that, but Sunshine finds their new house creepy and is cold all the time. When she starts to hear noises and finds things moved, her mother dismisses it as imagination. Sunshine feels lost until she meets Nolan Foster who shares her interest in both photography and paranormal events, though for different reasons. It becomes increasingly clear, when her mother's personality begins to change drastically, that they are in danger and Sunshine is the one who has to figure out how to save them. If you're looking for a Hallowe'en spooky story, this might be a good choice. You'll shiver along with Sunshine as she learns the truth.
Recommended for grades 7 and up as long as you don't mind scary. Review by Mrs. Belknap
