The Awakening of Sunshine Girl

The Awakening of Sunshine Girl

by : Paige McKenzie


Returning Sunshiners are ready for another creepy journey into the life of a luiseach. This time around, we get to know more about Sunshine’s past. Her father, who abandoned Sunshine when she was young, (relatable to teens and their conversive family issues) has invited her to Mexico where she ends up learning more about how to become a true luiseach.

Her intensive training leads Sunshine to learn about the history of being a luiseach and why she was chosen to become one. Some new friends come into the plot as well, however, we are still attached and care for our beloved characters in the first novel, aka, Nolan. This time, Nolan may be in trouble as someone is watching him closely while Sunshine is away.
