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!

My Review

This was a fun read. School Spirits is a spin off of the Hex Hall series by Rachel Hawkins. I have not read the Hex Hall series yet!

School Spirits is about Izzy (supernatural hunters), who goes on her first solo mission. Stop a ghost from haunting a high school. A simple job, all she has to do is to find out who the ghost is and pour some salt over the grave at the end of the month.

There is just one problem, Izzy have never be to school before. This is where all the fun start. Watching Izzy negative thru high school and learning how to make friends is funny.

One thing I love about School Spirits, Izzy had no clue about high school. She kept comparing her interactions to moments from a high school drama she watched, that her mom bought her so she could see how kids in a high school act.

School Spirits is a good book, full of lively characters.
