Upon turning 16, Sunshine Griffith suddenly develops the power to perceive paranormal activity and comes to the chilling realization that her new home in rainy Washington State is haunted by a girl who was brutally murdered and the demon responsible for her death. First in a series based on a popular YouTube series, this adaptation attempts to turn quick-cut video special effects into a gripping tale. On paper, the pace grows tedious as Sunshine's internal monologue flits among concerns about her busy mother's frequent absences, boys, and the increasingly creepy events taking place in her house. Coupled with contrived banter, confusingly interspersed musings of an omniscient narrator watching over Sunshine's life, and a penchant for blatantly laying out what Sunshine is feeling ("I'm not sad anymore. I'm angry"), the novel's attempt to build mystery and suspense around Sunshine's newfound ability falls short. There are some harrowing scenes, as when the ghost destroys the family bathroom, but by and large the story's chills are on the light side. Ages 12–up. Agent: Mollie Glick, Foundry Literary + Media.

Gr 9 Up—In this combination of ghost and coming-of-age story, readers follow Sunshine Griffith as she navigates the obstacles of a new school, boys, family, and, of course, her new and very haunted home. Sunshine and her mom move to Washington state from Texas for her mom's job. Their once strong and open relationship is soon sorely tested, not by the move but by something more supernatural. Sunshine starts to hear a little girl laughing and skipping around upstairs—a sound that only she can hear. She is soon fighting for her mother's life in this suspenseful tale. The chapters alternate between Sunshine's and the ghost's points of view, offering different perspectives on events. 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 (both S. & S.) should consider picking up this creepy debut. VERDICT A good choice for readers who enjoy Holly Black—Julie Zimmerman, School Library Journal
