Waiting on Wednesday #1: School Spirits by Rachel Hawkins
Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme/event hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine. It's basically showcasing what book bloggers are looking foreword to. This week I am waiting on:
School Spirits (School Spirits #1) by Rachel Hawkins
ExpectedRelease Date: May 14th, 2013
Fifteen-year-old Izzy Brannick was trained to fight monsters. For centuries, her family has hunted magical creatures. But when Izzy’s older sister vanishes without a trace while on a job, Izzy's mom decides they need to take a break.
Izzy and her mom move to a new town, but they soon discover it’s not as normal as it appears. A series of hauntings has been plaguing the local high school, and Izzy is determined to prove her worth and investigate. But assuming the guise of an average teenager is easier said than done. For a tough girl who's always been on her own, it’s strange to suddenly make friends and maybe even have a crush.
Can Izzy trust her new friends to help find the secret behind the hauntings before more people get hurt?
Rachel Hawkins' delightful spin-off brings the same wit and charm as the New York Times best-selling Hex Hall series. Get ready for more magic, mystery and romance! (Add on Goodreads)
Why I'm Waiting:
I loved Rachel's other series Hex Hall and remember Izzy from the third book, so I'm excited to see her make the move from minor character to lead character.
