"The Haunting of Sunshine Girl" - Paige McKenzie

Hello fellow bibliophiles! Thanks to the great people at Net Galley, I was able to read this great new story and indulge in my weakness for YA novels. The The Haunting of Sunshine Girl by Paige McKenzie is based off of a popular YouTube Channel. I personally have never watched or heard of the story/channel before I saw it on Net Galley and therefore had no prior knowledge of what the it was about.

The story starts off with a young girl, Sunshine, who is celebrating her 16th birthday, the starting point for which all is to come. Sunshine isn't like most kids. She doesn't have a lot of friends, loves vintage clothing, and has some interesting likes and hobbies. She and her mom pick up and move from Texas to Washington due to her mom, Kat's, new job opportunity. Upon arriving, Sunshine starts noticing little changes within herself, with her mom, and especially with there new house. She quickly comes to the realization that their house is haunted and she can interact with the child ghost who has taken up residence in their home. This is just the beginning of a crazy journey for Sunshine. Spirits and demons, mentors and protectors, luiseach and a crazy art teacher all wrap up this fantastic ghost story that leaves you hanging for more! What I loved best about the story and what I think sets it apart of similar stories is the depth of background the reader receives as to what and why is happening. McKenzie did a great job portraying the emotions and struggles Sunshine experiences while also keeping the reader dangling for more from the mysterious mentor who juts in at times to share his view point. I am looking forward to reading the next one in the series! Great book! As always, feel free to share any recommendations, suggestions, or comments! Thank you Net Galley for the opportunity to read this book!

Happy reading fools :)
