NEW YORK (January 2017) – She was supposed to die today... reads the chilling opening of The Sacrifice of Sunshine Girl. But thewildly successful paranormal young adult series is alive and flourishing: the final installment is due in stores and hot on its heels is a television series coming from The Weinstein Company.
The Sacrifice of Sunshine Girl picks up the suspenseful story from Books 1 and 2 in the trilogy: the original The Haunting of SunshineGirl, which spent four weeks among the top ten Young Adult paperback bestsellers on The New York Times, and its sequel, TheAwakening of Sunshine Girl. The first two books have sold more than 200,000 copies.
The Sunshine Girl series was created in 2010 by then sixteen-year-old high school junior, Paige McKenzie, who began playing Sunshine in a series of paranormal-themed videos on her YouTube channel of the same name.

In The Sacrifice of Sunshine Girl, Sunshine Griffith returns for the gripping finale with full control of her powers as a luiseach, an ancient race who have lived among humans for centuries, protecting them from dark spirits. Having barely survived an abyss full of demons in Book 2, Sunshine must now 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?
While The Sacrifice of Sunshine Girl marks the culmination of the book trilogy, this suspenseful story is in active development for television by The Weinstein Company. With a pilot now in place, The Weinstein Company is hopeful for a Fall 2017 television premiere.
