Waiting on Wednesday: School Spirits by Rachel Hawkins

Waiting on Wednesday recognizes that we as bookies pine for books. This post is about what I am impatiently waiting for right now. It was started by Jill at Breaking the Spine.

I am so stoked for this week's book! The Hex Hall series ended far too soon for me. While I enjoyed the story arc, I was truly sad to see it end. That's why this week's featured book has me so excited! While School Spirits is just a Hex Hall Spin-Off by Rachel Hawkins, it's sure to find a welcome reception from fans upon its May 14 arrival. Check out the awesomeness that's in store for us!

School Spirits coverFifteen-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 theNew York Times best-selling Hex Hall series. Get ready for more magic, mystery and romance!

From Goodreads

The main character Izzy was a riot in the last Hex Hall book. It's got a little bit of a Buffy the Vampire Slayer feel to it & I adore that! I'm really hoping that this series will be a trilogy like Hex Hall was because I don't think I could accept anything shorter. Rachel Hawkins has incredible talent & I have yet to hear any bad press about her writing. What do you think? Are you as excited for this book as I am? Did you read the Hex Hall series?
