Description

Exclusively on Audible. A Full-Cast Original Audio Drama for Ages 10 and Up.

"For a small, pretty town, we are surprisingly good at providing the unusual, the unexpected, the uncanny...."

Moving from the big city to the picturesque town of Sunnypoint seems perfect for Dillon and her mom. But the new house - a big, old Victorian - creeps Dillon out, especially the old trunk in the attic that seems to move by itself. As if that weren't bad enough, the tight-knit popular girls at her new school hate her instantly. Dillon finds solace with the quirky kids - Quinn, the film nerd, Birdie, the back-of-the-class wit, and Kumail, the history fanatic. Together they find a mysterious necklace in the trunk, and when Dillon wears it, all of her wishes seem to come true. For once the power may have shifted in her favor.

When one of Dillon's wishes is taken too literally, though, Quinn disappears, and she can't seem to wish him back. And her mom is suddenly acting super weird. Digging into the history of the house and its original owner, the kids decide maybe it's time to explore some darker magic to find Quinn. To undo what they have unleashed, they will have to delve into the deepest, darkest secrets of Sunnypoint - and face the lurking evil head on.

Welcome to Sunnypoint. Hope you enjoy your visit.

Great for 10 year old girl!

My daughter was into this right from the start. My 8 year old son liked it too!

Loved it!

I love how this book was written! It was so captivating and had me on the edge of my seat at times. I love the spook factor and how they used a full cast, with proper background noises that made you feel like you could picture the scene as you listened to it.

Creepy and fun!

This is more like an old timey radio play than a traditional audio book, with a full cast and sound effects. It's broken up into 12 parts, but each one has a cliffhanger so you'll definitely want to binge it. It's for kids, and it's creepy--no spoilers, but ghosts and other supernatural stuff makes this a great Halloween listen.

Scary Old Time Radio Fun

I purchased this for a soon to visit 10 year old nephew who loves scary books and thought it would be something he would enjoy. I was right: he loved it and so did I! He listened to it twice during his visit and told me he can't wait for the next installment.

For myself, this harkens back to the radio programs of the 40's and 50's. Excellent story, very good production values and mostly all the performances are spot on. Like my nephew, I am looking forward to Volume 2!

Super entertaining...even for adults

I chose this knowing it was made for children, but I really enjoyed it! I love the style of this audiobook. It's like watching a movie with your eyes closed. There are tons of sound effects and music to help fill in what's going on. I was never confused who was talking, or where the scene was taking place. I wish all audiobooks could have a narrator for every voice.

I can't speak to how entertaining this would be for a child. It might be a little creepy for younger children (I would have been scared, but I was a chicken). Listening to this as an adult, I did roll my eyes at some of the dialogue, but it was fitting considering the intended audience. I think story is good, but the real reason to get this audiobook is for the unique listening experience. Please make more like this, Audible!

Great Young Adult Urban Fantasy

Any additional comments?

I'm always on the lookout to try out audiobooks with a full cast of narrators. This one was great! It is like listening to a radio drama. The narrators did a wonderful job of making the characters and story come to life.

I would label this as a Young Adult Urban Fantasy but it's a solid story that can appeal to anyone that wants to listen to an engaging adventure story with an eerie twist. The story is complete within this book and you're left with a little bit of a teaser for what may happen next.

I will definitely keep an eye out for the next audiobook. Great performance and solid story that kept me engaged from the start to finish.

Great spine chiller

What a wonderfully crafted story. Written from the kids perspective with very real and endearing characters. Interesting twists and turns with just the right amount of shiver!

Difficulty differentiating among the characters

Although the full cast used different actors, names of the characters were used less frequently than I would have liked to be able to tell them apart when two girls were talking to each other.

A new series begins

The Sunnypoint Chronicles is an interesting premise, albeit one that is quite familiar. New girl and her recently divorced mother move to a new town and buy a spooky old house. The heroine here, Dillon, the daughter, tries to make friends at school with mixed results. She clashes with a couple mean girls but finds a few friends as well. Oh, did I mention her home is haunted by the original owner, a rather unpleasant spiritualist from about a century back?

Things go rather predictably off kilter when the "house" gives Dillon a wish granting necklace.

This is all fine, if familiar ground. l believe this is a great book for middle grades. A bit spooky but not really horrific. The characters spend equal time worrying about fitting in at school as they do about friends and family being possessed by the dead.

I had hoped for a bit more sophistication, but I am hardly the target audience. The full cast performance was nice and moved the story along briskly. The ending makes it very clear that this is only the first installment in this new series. I don't think I will be continuing with the series, but I do think it is very good for the target age group.

Mixed Feelings

I thought the story line was great however the sound affects were distracting and made it a bit cheesy.

Just a fun teenage haunted house book.

The acting and the storyline was good but the sounds effects and spooky music were a little contrived. But still a fun easy read.
