Review : Student Bodies

Student Bodies
Sean Cummings
  Strange Chemistry

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 über 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 Review:
This was a fun read for me. I had not read the first book but did purchase it because of this wonderful follow up. Julie is a great main character with a good outlook on life that intrigues the reader from the start. Dealing with real life issues that face every teen makes her seem realistic.
  Strong themes give this book its back bone and pulls the reader in deeper. Julie handles life like a real teenager who would stumble and make mistakes, but she strives to fix things and make them right.
