WoW: School Spirits by Rachel Hawkins

School Spirits by Rachel Hawkins
School Spirits #1
Release Date: May 14, 2013
Publisher: Disney Hyperion

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?

I am a huge fan of the Hex Hall series, so I was ecstatic when I found out there would be a spin off series! I'm so excited for this one, and I'll hopefully be buying it as soon as it comes out in May. EEP!

Waiting on Wednesday is hosted by Breaking the Spine. Join in the fun!


  1. I've been meaning to get around to the Hex Hall series, it sounds pretty good :) This one was up on NetGalley or Edelweiss, I believe... you didn't request it?

  2. I loved Hex Hall too, so i can't wait for this one either .. Can it please be May soon? :P

  3. I can't wait to learn more about the Brannicks and Izzy! We didn't get to see enough of them in Spell Bound

  4. I loved the Hex Hall series, and can't wait for this new series. Great pick.

  5. Sounds like a fun and interesting read. The description is kind of confusing, though. Her sister vanishes and so they move?! Did they find the sister? Or is that part of what the whole plot is about - finding the sister?

  6. I haven't read a single Rachel Hawkins book, but by now, I see them everyone, and probably know a good bit about them! I hope you enjoy this book when you get the chance to read it! :D

    Here is my WoW post!

  7. I am so excited about this book!! I loved Hex Hall!

  8. I remember reading Hex Hall ages ago! I really need to get into it again...this spin off series looks cool. Thanks for sharing.

  9. I have been meaning to read Hex Hall FOR-E-VER. Should I? Is it good? (I'm assuming it is since you're a huge fan of it but OH WELL, asking anyway!)
