School Spirits by Rachel Hawkins

School Spirits (School Spirits, #1)

Killing a vampire is actually a lot easier than you’d think.I know movies and TV make it look really hard, like if you don’t hit the right spot, it won’t work. But the truth is, those are just rumors to make themselves seem thoughet. If everyone knew how easy is to kill a vamp, there wouldn’t be so many movies and TV shows and stuff. All it takes is a wooden stake and enogh pressure to send it through the chest cavity. Doesn’t really matter if you hit the heart or not.
See so easy.
But capturing a vampire? Yeah, that’s a little bit tougher.

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?


Izzy Brannick nu este o adolescenta obisnuita, acelasi lucru se poate spune si despre familia ei. De secole intregi, familia Brannick  este cunoscuta  in lumea monstrilor (sau Prodigium) pentru a ceea ce erau – vanatori. In ultimul timp situatia celor 3 Brannick (Izzy, Finn- sora sa si Aislinn- mama lor) ramasi in viata ,nu a fost tocmai roz. Izzy aproape fusese omorata de un vampir, cu un an in urma Finn disparuse in timpul unei vanatori de vrajitoare,  iar Aislinn isi petrecea cel mai mult timp printre carti, cautand indicii in cazul „fiica disparuta”. Dar ce faci cand mama ta considera ca nu esti destul de puternica pentru cazurile grele, si in schimb, te pune sa vanezi o fantoma ce bantuie liceul Mary Evans? Izzy cu greu accepta, dar in final se gaseste inconjurata de prieteni, si cumva incepe sa ii placa viata unui adolescent normal, asta pana cand afla ca unul  dintre prietenii ei, dragutul si „cavalerul” Dex nu este 100% un om viu. Oare Dex este si el Prodigium? Ce se va intampla cu el, daca ii spune mamei sale ce crede? Dar cum sa fie baiatul de care se indragostise un monstru cand el are astm? Parca monstrii nu se imbolnaveau….

Dupa succesul avut cu seria „Hex Hall”, Rachel Hawkins revine cu o noua serie- „School Spirits”. Primul volum din aceasta serie apare pe 14 Mai in S.U.A. (Disney Hyperion). Sincera sa fiu, nu am mai citit pana acum nimic scris de Rachel, S.S. fiind prima si chiar mi-a placut( merita 4 Luni din 5). Asa ca, daca aveti nevoie de o carte care sa va faca sa radeti  alegeti S.S.. Thank you Rachel for sending me this amazing book!


Why was hunting monsters less scary than waiting by a freaking stop sign in the suburbs?
„Remember, main thing today is just to start getting yourself situated. Head down-„
„Eyes open”. I finished for her. That might as well have been the Brannick family motto.
She turned back, and for the first time seemed to notice Dex. „Who is this?”
„I’m Dexter O’Neil, Mrs. Brannick.”, Dex said, offering his hand to shake. „And I’m hoping you’ll adopt me.” Mom looked back and forth between the two of us before muttering, „I need a drink”, and walking out of the room.
