A spin-off story from the best-selling author of the Hex Hall series features 15-year-old monster-fighting heroine Izzy Brannick. She comes from a long line of monster hunters and her forebears have fought with witches, vampires, faeries, werewolves and mostly come out on top. But when Izzy's older sister vanishes after fighting a coven of witches, Izzy's mom decides it's time for a break and moves to a small Mississippi town. Izzy is enrolled in the local high school, but being an average teenager is easier said than done. For a tough girl who has always been on her own, it’s strange to suddenly make friends and maybe even have a crush.
