School Spirits by Rachel Hawkins

Here's a little blurb from the books goodreads pageFifteen-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 Take

I've been reading quite a few stories with ghosts and spirits lately.  I just must be in a supernatural frame of mind.  Rachel Hawkins never seems to be a disappointment either.  I've always loved her stories. 

Izzy is quite the spirited (pun intended) girl!  I like the premise of this story as well.  I'm sure we will have an opportunity to read more abou the Brannick clan and their antics.  I enjoyed this book.  The characters were cool, not too over the top (a good thing) and relatable.  Love the romance building between Izzy and Dex.  Ghost hunting, monster killing seems completely plausible.  Giving this one 4 spirited kisses!
