“. . . a genuinely creepy story with a wonderful cast of characters . . .”
Eccentric in dress and outlook, Sunshine Griffith is a young woman who has always marched happily to the sound of her own drum, but her life takes a radically different turn when her foster-mother Kat gets a great job in the hospital at Ridgemont, Washington. They move from the warmth of Austin, Texas, to the perpetual dampness of the Pacific Northwest. To Kat it’s a chance to advance in her career. To Sunshine it means a new home, a new school, and new friends to make – all hard for a girl who has always been something of a loner.
From the get-go Sunshine realizes their new home is haunted – yet Kat seems increasingly distant and unaware of anything wrong. Puzzled by her mom’s behavior Sunshine enlists good looking local nerd Nolan Foster to help her get to the bottom of the mystery. It’s not long before they find a connection between tragic deaths in the town two years before and the ghosts haunting Sunshine’s house. Sunshine slowly comes to realize she’s not who she thought she was, that someone is lurking in the shadows manipulating her life – but to what purpose, and what does the haunting have to do with it? And just who – or what – is affecting her mom? Tension mounts toward the chilling climax, and life for Sunshine and Nolan will never be the same again.
Young adults and older readers alike will enjoy The Haunting of Sunshine Girl. Paige McKenzie has created a genuinely creepy story with a wonderful cast of characters you’ll cheer on to the last page.
