Cover Reveal: School Spirits!
Author: Rachel Hawkins
Comes out: May 14th, 2013
"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!" -Goodreads.com summary
Ahem, excuse me while I get this out: AHHHHHHHHHHHANEWBOOKBYRACHELHAWKINSAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!
I'm not actually sure when the cover was released. I just saw it today, give me a break! So if it came out like a month ago and you amused readers are laughing at me, well, I don't really blame you.
The thing I love about Rachel Hawkin's novels are that I know that I can count on them being good. Hex Hall and its not-as-great-but-still-awesome sequels were amazing.
The ones for the Hex Hall series are actually not my favorite. This one on the other hand, I love! I like the font on the cover, the sharp contrast of the painting on fire to the background, and the fact that Izzy is carrying a stake. (What? Makes me think of Buffy the Vampire Slayer, also known as one of the greatest shows in history. But I digress.)
Can May come faster, please? Maybe if I were to acquire a time machine....
