The Haunting of Sunshine Girl by Paige McKenzie
I decided to read this book because several people came into the library asking for it in one day. It is in the scholastic book fair selections and several teens saw it there in their school and wanted to check it out from the library to read. Our copies were already checked out and I had to put it on hold for a few people. The book started out as a Youtube series, and then was picked up to become a book series. That is an interesting way to write a book. I have only watched the first video so far so I am not sure how well the book follows it. This is a fun to read, creepy ghost story for teens. Sixteen year old Sunshine and her adoptive mother have moved from Texas to Washington state where it is perpetually dark and damp and Sunshine is sure that their new house is haunted. At first, her mother laughs that off, but later, she denies it and gets angry when Sunshine even mentions that. As her mother gets stranger, Sunshine is befriended by a boy at school named Nolan who is excited about the idea of a ghost and wants to help her find out what is going on. The book is fast paced and I look forward to the next book in the series!
