Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Gr 8 Up-If teens gobbled up the fast-paced, thrilling events surrounding Sunshine Griffith and her mother, Kat, in The Haunting of Sunshine Girl (Weinstein, 2015), they're sure to enjoy the new twists and turns of this latest series installment. Sunshine, her powers fully awakened, has to deal not only with spirits now following her everywhere but the dire need to hone such overwhelming abilities. For that, she needs the help of a mentor, Aidan, who also happens to be her birth father. From the comfort she gets from her friend and confidante Nolan to the thrill she gets from a young man in Mexico named Lucio to the endless frustration and questions she has for her father, Sunshine has her work cut out for her. McKenzie continues to write in an authentic teen voice that sucks readers in until the end. Fans ready to graduate from R.L. Stine's "Goosebumps" (Scholastic) or those looking for a mix of Carolyn Keene's "Nancy Drew" and DC Comic's "Scooby Doo" will find just what they need in this paranormal series. ­VERDICT Teens who enjoyed the previous volume or the author's YouTube channel will dive into this latest entry of ghost mischief.-Julie Zimmerman, Brooklyn Public Libraryα(c) Copyright 2011.

"McKenzie continues to write in an authentic teen voice that sucks readers in until the end. Fans ready to graduate from R.L. Stine’s Goosebumps (Scholastic) or those looking for a mix of Carolyn Keene’s Nancy Drew and DC Comic’s Scooby Doo will find just what they need in this paranormal series. Teens who enjoyed the previous volume or the author’s YouTube channel will dive into this latest entry of ghost mischief."
— Julie Zimmerman, School Library Journal

Praise for The Haunting of Sunshine Girl:

The Haunting of Sunshine Girl starts with mysterious ghostly laughter late one night. The laughter quickly turns to horror. It seems Sunshine Griffith has moved into a house haunted by many evil spirits. Trust me - these spirits will haunt YOU, too. I was on the edge of my seat from the very first page.”
— R.L. Stine, author of Goosebumps and Fear Street

“Enthralling! Shivers of anticipation creep up and terrifying, ancient revelations come thick and fast. Sunshine Girl is a winner for fans of teen horror!”
— Anya Allyn, author of The Dark Carousel series

“When teen prodigy Paige McKenzie sets her mind to do something, she does it big time. 200,000 active YouTube subscribers on her site and over 100 million views, for instance. Not bad for a kid who still gets carded and can't vote. So when she decided to write a scary book, she nailed that one too. By the end of the first chapter I turned on all the lights in the house, even though it was noon. And it wasn't long before I'd retreated into that last-resort safe room buried deep beneath my brain's Fear Center, praying the lock would hold. No such luck. Before I knew McKenzie was out there she'd hacked the door and let all manner of frightening things slither in to get me. ... Things that go bump in the night are afraid to read this book. Things that lurk beneath the bed cry for their mothers by page ten. McKenzie's skill telling the story of a young girl who inadvertently moves into a haunted house with her clueless mother is a thing that slips up behind and puts a cold white hand right down your spine and just won't let go. The book is called The Haunting of Sunshine Girl. Read it if you dare, but don't say I didn't warn you.”
— Wes Craven, Filmmaker

“Sunshine’s adventure is filled with bumps in the night and shadowy figures, alluding to a larger mystery and larger world that has plenty to offer imaginative readers who grew up on Goosebumps and the like. Suspenseful, exciting and endlessly entertaining.”
Kirkus Review

“Sunshine’s story started as a YouTube series, and this creepy, suspenseful story condenses the plot of the original and offers a more polished voice than the videos. Existing fans won’t be the only ones eager for more of this strong but vulnerable heroine just awakening to her potential.”
Booklist (Grades 7–10)

“This sometimes frightening tale and series opener is based on a YouTube channel of the same name, so transmedia fans can enjoy both formats. Readers who appreciated Holly Black’s Doll Bones (2013) or Cassandra Clare’s City of Bones series ... should consider picking up this creepy debut.”
— Julie Zimmerman, School Library Journal

"The plot moves along smoothly and rapidly, and the writing is graceful and wonderfully polished... It’s hard not to finish The Haunting of Sunshine Girl."
— Lev Grossman, Time Magazine

"The Haunting of Sunshine Girl has all the makings of a creepy story without being straight-up horror. The terrifying moments are strong and seamlessly handled. The reader is right there alongside Sunshine as she first doubts her own perceptions, then fearlessly makes friends with a ghost and resolves to save the day. Her relationship with her mom is touching and real, and her loyal friend Nolan is the perfect sidekick. Teens who loved Goosebumps will be spooked and satisfied by the adventures of Sunshine."
— Allison Chopin, New York Daily News
