The Sacrifice of Sunshine Girl

By (author) Paige McKenzie, With Nancy Ohlin

Now in Paperback: The final installment of the New York Times bestselling Haunting of Sunshine Girl trilogy (based on the hit YouTube channel, and in development for television by The Weinstein Company) about a girl who can communicate with ghosts.

Is Sunshine Griffith who she thinks she is? Now that her luiseach powers are fully awakened, and having barely survived an abyss full of demons at the end of Book Two, Sunshine must figure out who-or what-has been organizing the forces of darkness against her.

Thanks to her brainiac boyfriend, Nolan, they not only unearth that Sunshine's death would trigger a calamitous event, but that all civilization depends on her survival. So when an unexpected event unleashes a fierce war between the luiseach and the demon army, Sunshine will learn a shocking truth about herself. Can she bring herself to make the ultimate sacrifice to save humankind?

"Read if you dare!"—Seventeen Magazine

"Love, betrayal, tortured choices and a fabulous vintage motorcycle all factor into this thrilling YA paranormal story. You may not be able to put this book down once you begin reading it. Take my advice: Start reading The Awakening of Sunshine Girl on a Friday night so you'll have fewer distractions over the next two days!"—Rochelle Campbell

"Sunshine continues to be a likable protagonist who strives to grow into herself and her unusual role in life. A cliff-hanger ending will have fans clamoring for the third installment."—Booklist

"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

"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

"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

"Read it if you dare, but don't say I didn't warn you."—Wes Craven, Filmmaker

"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 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.—School Library Journal

"For a truly 'adorkable' heroine and a lot of mischief and Monopoly-playing ghosts, pick this up!"—Jessie Potts, USA Today

"The Haunting of Sunshine Girl by Paige McKenzie is based on the YouTube web series phenomena and will prove to be an enduringly popular addition to school and community library YA fiction collections."—James A. Cox, Midwest Book Review

"Teens who loved Goosebumps will be spooked and satisfied by the adventures of Sunshine."—Allison Chopin, New York Daily News

"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

"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 Reviews

"Paige McKenzie's outstanding fantasy action/adventure series will prove to be an outstanding and enduringly popular addition to community library collections."
