What happens when for the first time, you get to be a little normal? If only to hunt the crazy ghost which is taking over the town. Good read, can't wait to see how this continues.

I really enjoyed School Spirits. But I thought it would have been in Sophie's perspective. It was great to get to know more about the Brannick family but was really looking forward to see what was going to happen at Hex Hall with Sophie. But all in all, it was a good book. Once I started reading it, it only took me two days :)

This book was great! I loved learning more about Izzy Brannick and the Brannick family as well as Torin. Torin & Izzy have a really fun relationship to watch although it was also really fun to see how the relationship between her and Dex developed as well. Her time at High School was also pretty entertaining. I hope to see more of Izzy Brannick in the future.

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! (From Goodreads)

“You knocked out Ben McCrary?' he asked, eyes wide.
'It was an accident,' I said again. 'I threw the ball harder than I meant to.'
Dex burst into laughter. 'Oh my God, that is the greatest thing I've heard all week. You are my new hero.'
Squinting at me, he leaned in and said, 'Serious, I might actually be in love with you now. Would it be awkward if we made out?”
