"Based on the wildly popular YouTube channel, The Haunting of Sunshine Girl has been described as “ Gilmore Girls meets Paranormal Activity for the new media age.” YA fans new and old will learn the secrets behind Sunshine—the adorkable girl living in a haunted house—a story that is much bigger, and runs much deeper, than even the most devoted viewer can imagine…"

I received an e-book ARC of this book from the publishers via netgalley. I've never seen the youtube channel sadly.

This book follows a girl named Sunshine who moved with her mother from Austin, Texas to Ridgemount, Washington. They rent a home they found on craigslist in the little town and right from the moment they pull up in the driveway Sunshine knows there is something off. Everything is foggy, cold and wet. From the very first night, Sunshine hears the footsteps on the floors, the giggling of a little girl and soon experiences her items moving around her room and board games set up ready to be played. Sunshine is quite positive that the spirit haunting her home is a little girl but, is it really only one spirit, are there more? Is it even human? With the help of a new boy from school - Nolan, Sunshine learns about her life, the spirit(s) in her house as well as what her future will hold.

I really enjoyed this book, I must admit I was thoroughly creeped out during the first half of the book. I don't like to admit how much of a wuss I am, but I would only read this during the day, just in case it bothered me too much. [haha] I love horror anything but I have an over active imagination that can cause some sleepless nights.

I found this book read more like a middle-grade story rather than young adult but don't like that deter you from picking this one up. It was an easy read with creepy bits, twists and turns as well as a fantastic ending. If you have a chance to read this book, I suggest you do!

4 out of 5 stars!!
