Starr is 17 years old and her best friend is Lily, an outgoing, guy crazy, pretty girl. Starr is a reporter for the school newspaper and has a crush on Dylan, one of the three older kids on the "Squad". He seems to like her too, but they are not allowed to date because she is not on the Squad. While investigating a story on a girl who committed suicide at their school, Starr discovers that Dylan, Ryder and Bex (squad members) are part of a game that is quite magical and seems to involved not only the dead girl, but Lily and Starr themselves. Soon everyone is tied up in a mess of magical abilities, memory loss, a murder and a power stealing bad guy that wants to harm Starr for digging too deep.
While this is a great mystery, I really just think the romantic sections could have been written better because Starr is really very brave, intelligent and loyal, but Romantically, she acts like a 13 year old. She follows her instincts no matter where they lead and this would naturally include her physical responses to Dylan. That being said, the overall story is fantastic and I am looking forward to the next one.

Starr is a reporter for the school newspaper. When she gets a nose for a good story, she doesn't let it go. She also has a crush on Dylan, a member of the It Squad. The Squad isn't allowed to date outsiders, but Starr just knows there is something weird going on with them. She wonders if it ties in with the death of Jade, a school mate who committed suicide. She smells a story.
Starr finds out they are playing a game. Something to do with a fox and hounds. She is determined to find out what's going on. Enlisting the help of her best friend, Lily, Starr finds out a little more than she bargained for. And she finds out things aren't always the way they seem.
Excellent follow up to Crushed! I really enjoyed Crushed, but Witch Hunt was more to my liking. There is mystery, intrigue, humor, magic, danger and a bit of romance. There is a lot of action and it keeps you guessing until the end, when all is revealed. Well done!
Starr is a noisy reporter, who lets her curiosity get the best of her again and again. She knows no boundaries when it comes to getting her story, which doesn't make her necessarily the most popular girl in school either. When her reporter sense swings her to a group of kids known as the It-Squad, things start getting strange. Before she knows it, odd things are happening and something is off with life in general. Now, if she can just put her finger on exactly what the problem is.
This is the second book in The Witch-Game series. Although I did read the first one, it is by no means necessary to start with book one. Each of the novels is a story for itself, handling different high schools, characters and situations. In other words, this can be read as a stand alone without any problem whatsoever.
I enjoyed this book even more than the first one. The school setting is well done, allowing the lockers and hallways to come to life. There's a lot of inner drama between the students and characters, which comes across very realistic without running into the danger of exaggeration. At first, the It-Squad and the way others see them (or don't notice anything out of sorts) comes across a bit odd, but as the story unfolds, the reason for this becomes clear.
The characters are a real treat. Starr isn't without her flaws. The way she hunts done a story is over the top at times, and its no wonder she isn't loved by all. Still, it's hard not to like her. She has her heart in the right place and a good sense of justice. The other characters each have very definite personalities and traits, making them come to life in their own way. None of them is perfect, but it's exactly this which makes the easier to sympathize with.
The real pulp of the plot takes a bit to get going as the 'normal' situation gets laid out first and allows the reader to sink into the characters and gives hints at the soon layered mystery. And there are lots of twists and turns ahead. A few are easy to see, while others hit with unexpected surprise. The tempo holds steady, however, through-out, making this a book not easy to put down.
There's romance too--sweet and a little humorous. Although there are some darker moments and tension does run high especially toward the end, humor and sarcasm pepper the dialogue making it a fun, entertaining read.
