Describe the plot of ‘The Haunting of Sunshine Girl’ in a tweet – less than 140 characters please!
Sunshine and her mum move away from their sunny house in Texas to a very creepy looking town in Washington where it never seems to stop raining! From the moment she first sees it, Sunshine is convinced the house is haunted and as time goes on, strange things start to happen…[MP! Note: More than a tweet but you’re making us want to read it again!]
Have you watched or seen any of ‘The Haunting of Sunshine Girl’ series on YouTube?
No I haven’t, I’m a real wuss – watching scary things is much scarier than reading about scary things!
Without giving anything away, does the ending make you want to read the next in the series?
Yes! I can’t explain how excited I am to find out what happens next, maybe I’ll even camp outside the bookstore on the night of the release!
What genre would you class the book as?
What was the best bit?
Definitely the part when the lights shut off during the movie night; my heart was racing and my mouth was dry! The scene was described in a way that made me feel like I was there too.
Anything you didn’t like?
Not at all – this has become one of my all-time favourite books!
Would you recommend ‘The Haunting of Sunshine Girl’ series to your friends?
Definitely! This book is perfect for anyone that fancies a thrill.
Do you think it would appeal to girls or boys more? Or both?
Although the main character is a girl which may put some boys off, I would say that it’s great for both boys and girls because horror is such an open genre. Unlike a genre like romance (which is predominantly aimed at girls) I think horror is suitable for anyone with a bit of a nerve!
Anything else you’d like to tell us about the book?
I honestly didn’t think that I would like this book as I usually steer clear of anything horror related as I’m such a wimp, but I was so surprised at how much I enjoyed it! It wasn’t as scary as I was expecting it to be and it wasn’t totally focussed on the horror side of the story – there’s small segments about Sunshine’s school life as well.
