Something freaky is 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 mom 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.
When I picked this book I had no idea that is came from a popular YouTube series of the same name. To be honest I picked it because the main character’s name is Sunshine and that reminds me of my niece Sunny, who happens to be my favorite person in the world. Completely by accident I started reading it around Halloween so it was a good book for the season. I have to say I did enjoy the book….did it blow me away, no, but it held my interest. I really liked the subject matter & the characters. I liked it enough to want to read the trilogy. I am taking the second book of the series with me on my cruise this weekend along with two other books. I wanted something light and entertaining to read while on vacation and this series fits the bill. The overall rating of this series gets better each book so I am hoping I enjoy the second one even more.
