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.
Somehow I found this web series about Sunshine and the creepy things that were going on in her house, I watched a few and really enjoyed the girl that played Sunshine, when I saw she has a book about the series on Netgalley I grabbed it right away. This book was not what I was expecting, I really enjoyed it but I think I was thrown off having only seen a few of the youtube video, I thought it was going to be about a haunting in her house, however, I wasn’t expecting it to be about supernatural powers and a hidden secret. I wasn’t disappointed I really enjoyed this book very much and I loved how the story was told and it was very interesting but I think I was hoping for a more scary ghost kind of story. Something that would make me question turning off the lights or being in the house alone.
Since I was already a fan of Sunshine because of the youtube video I already enjoyed her in the book so I knew I would love the character and I was at times very worried about her. I really like the relationship she has with her mom and I am cheering her and Noah on hoping they will make more of their relationship. The story ended leaving it open for another book and I am looking forward to reading it when it becomes available.
I think my tolerance for scary books is a lot higher than some so this might be creepy for some people and not for others but over all it is a very good read and would be happy to read more from her even if it’s not this series.Good read with great scares and awesome twists. Click To Tweet
