The Haunting of Sunshine Girl by Paige McKenzie
The Haunting of Sunshine Girl is based on the YouTube web series of the same name.
Shortly after her sixteenth birthday, Sunshine Griffith and her mother, Kat, move from sunny Austin, Texas to the rain-drenched town of Ridgemont, Washington. Though Sunshine is adopted, she and her mother have always been close, sharing a special bond filled with laughter and inside jokes. But from the moment they arrive, Sunshine feels her world darken with an eeriness she cannot place. And even if Kat doesn’t recognize it, Sunshine knows that something about their new house is just… creepy.

In The Haunting of Sunshine Girl, Sunshine and her mom have just moved into a house that Sunshine is convinced is haunted. It starts out as your average routine haunting– footsteps and laughter in the night, doors opening and closing, things moving on their own. But it soon escalates into a full-blown nightmare, with just enough creeptastic scenes to make you want to sleep with the lights on for a few days. Along the way, Sunshine meets a boy named Nolan– the only person who seems to believe Sunshine– who helps her try to figure out who is haunting her house, and why. What they learn, not just about the ghost, but Sunshine herself, changes everything. It wraps up with a terrifying finale as Sunshine attempts to free the ghost from her house, as well as the dark spirit that has also taken up residence.
