Synopsis:

Whoever said being a teenage witch would be easy? For fifteen-year-old Julie Richardson and the city’s resident protector from supernatural evil, the Left Hand Path doesn't give a damn if you've found true love for the first time in your life. There’s someone lurking the halls of Crescent Ridge High School with enough malice to unleash an epidemic of Soul Worms – supernatural larvae that feed on the very fabric of a victim’s humanity.

After witnessing the death of one of the most popular kids at school, Julie and ├╝ber genius boyfriend Marcus are in a race against time to find out who is behind the attacks. All the evidence points to a horrifying plot at the City Weir during the Winter Solstice; the place where icy waters of the Bow River and a thunderous spillway will mean the deaths of more than a hundred of Julie’s classmates.

If she has any hope of saving their lives, she’ll need a little help from a coven of white witches and an Aboriginal mage whose snarky attitude is matched only by her magical prowess.

My rating: ★★★★☆

I probably don't need to say this, but just to make it clear I LOVE WITCHES! They are my most favorite supernatural creature EVER! And you know what, I (for some reason) didn't think there would be a sequel to Poltergeeks because it wrapped things up so nicely. But I'm glad there was a sequel because I really liked it!

Like the last one, this book was action-packed, just how I like it :) And not only that, there was also that little mystery as to what the heck is going on with Julie's classmates. I, for one, didn't have a clue as to what was going on with them, who was causing it, and they're motive...not until Julie figured it out, that is ;) So yes, I definitely liked the mystery behind Student Bodies.

As I said, I love witches, and therefore loved all the crazy magical stuff that went on. Including our new magical friend Twyla, whose powers are beyond amazing!

Julie is as fun and crazy as ever! And man, she and Marcus make such a cute couple and one heck of a supernatural busting team (or whatever you call it, lol)! And Twyla's addition to the team was just genius!

Switching onto another note, that thing at the end... that thing that Marcus said... It shocked the crap out of me! I never expected it, and actually, I still don't know what to think of that unexpected twist.

Another thing I loved about this book was that Julie's mom was actually involved in the magical craziness, as opposed to other YA books where the parental figures are nowhere to be found.

Overall, I thought it was a great story and I highly recommend this series to those who love magic and a little paranormal romance and OhMyGods I cannot wait to see what will happen next! That cliffhanger-type ending is killing me!
