Impatiently Waiting! School Spirits by Rachel Hawkins


Expected publish date:
May 14, 2013

Goodreads' summary: 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!



Waiting on Wednesday is hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine.

Eeeeee!! I just read the last book of Hex Hall this past week and was sad that it was all over---and then I saw this on goodreads a few days ago!! Yaaaaay! Glad we're getting more of this world. Hex Hall was such a fun series. :D

Love the cover! I'm a fan of the Hex Hall series and if I'm not mistaken this is a spin-off of the series so I would love to read the book when it comes out. Sounds pretty interesting too... Great pick! I hope you enjoy reading it.
Come check out my WOW post.

I haven't read the Hex Hall series, but this sounds really good. I like that it's a spin off so I don't necessarily have to read the Hex Hall series, but I definitely want to read it first. Great pick!

So excited for this one-I love Hawkins' writing style and I am ready to return to this world!

I was just thinking I needed to find more people who are obsessed with the same genres of books that I am. Urban fantasy, paranormal and all those lovely shifters FTW! Most excellent choice of WoW. Definitely loved that series & am interested in the spin-off.
