12:44 PM

Rachel Hawkins shared the cover for School Spirits, a spin-off novel of her very popular Hex Hall series, on her Tumblr today!

Release Date: May 14, 2013
Publisher: Disney-Hyperion

Summary (from Goodreads): 
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!

I can't believe I almost forgot there was going to be a new Hex Hall spin-off novel until I saw the cover of School Spirits today! I think a re-read of the Hex Hall series, or at least of Spell Bound, is in order for me because my memory is already blurry on the role Izzy Brannick played...

What are your thoughts on the book cover? I love how it reminds me of the covers for the Hex Hall novels, yet has a darker edge that really stands out!

  1. Sweet. I love how it keeps the same theme as the Hex Hall books. And I love the title.

    I'm excited to read this because I KNEW this series would be about Izzy when reading Spell Bound (before she announced who the spin off would be about). A lot of stuff in Spell Bound seemed rushed and not wrapped up properly, but hopefully those things will be answered here!
