  • The awakening of Sunshine GirlThe awakening of Sunshine Girl : The haunting of Sunshine Girl bk.2

    McKenzie, Paige.

    Having passed her test in Book One, Sunshine's Luiseach powers are now fully awakened: for months now, Sunshine has felt spirits everywhere: heard voices, felt emotions - intense and sometimes overwhelming. She tries to ignore them, but it is impossible. Hoping to get her powers under control - and hoping for answers to her never-ending questions - she agrees to undergo training with her Luiseach mentor, even though she still hopes to give up her powers someday. She and her mentor clash left and right; he doesn't understand or approve of her attachment to the humans in her life; and she can't understand how he could give her up so many years ago, only to endanger her mother's life as part of a test. Sunshine's training is every bit as terrifying and creepy as her test was, and along the way she meets and befriends another young Luiseach, forcing her to confront her feelings for Nolan. Though her mentor is reluctant to answer her many questions, she finally learns more about her lineage, as well as the rift that threatens the future of Luiseach and the human race... and the crucial part she has to play in repairing it.

    Matsui, Yusei.

    Ever caught yourself screaming, "I could just kill that teacher"? What would it take to justify such antisocial behavior and weeks of detention? Especially if he's the best teacher you've ever had? Giving you an "F" on a quiz? Mispronouncing your name during roll call...again? How about blowing up the moon and threatening to do the same to Mother Earth--unless you take him out first?! Plus a reward of a cool 100 million from the Ministry of Defense! Okay, now that you're committed... How are you going to pull this off? What does your pathetic class of misfits have in their arsenal to combat Teach's alien technology, bizarre powers and...tentacles?!.
