ABOUT THE BOOK -
Delilah Price is still dealing with the consequences of her recent abduction, but she needs to keep her life on track. In order to survive as an artist in New York City, she has started working as a substitute teacher, which leaves her navigating between two worlds that are foreign to her – students and educators.
Detective Patrick Quick has taken up a big place in Delilah's life. That is, when he isn't consumed by a case. And right now the case that is taking Quick away from Delilah involves a serial rapist and is striking very close to home.
On her way to her first day of work, Delilah witnesses a young girl falling in front of a subway train – or was she pushed? The victim turns out to have been a student at the middle school where Delilah has been assigned to teach and the teacher she is subbing for is a missing person herself. As Delilah gets to know her students and befriends a teacher on staff, she realizes that many have been hiding dark secrets that suggest abuse and worse. And when yet another girl who has hinted strongly that she was abused is a no show to class, Delilah stops counting on police help and follows leads on her own. Putting a dangerous predator on her trail.
The dramatic follow-up to Susan Israel's debut suspense novel, Over My Live Body, Student Bodies is a novel rippling with tension and twists.

MY THOUGHTS -
Wow! Great book! This was very suspenseful, edgy, with lots of action!
My only regret is that I have not read the first one - Over My Live Body... yet. This definitely can be read as a stand alone, but I would recommend reading the first just to get a better feel for Delilah and her character and what makes her ticks. I am going to add the first one to my reading list.
What I actually loved the most was the characters. I love books that take place in a school. I guess its because I worked in a school setting most of my work life, so I can relate.
I thought Susan did an excellent job with the teen girls personalities, as well as Delilah. She was quirky and snarky - just my type!
Everything felt very real to me. It was fast paced but was not overdone. I can't believe it but I read this whole book in one day! I didn't want to put it down.
"You're molding young minds."
"Actually a few of those minds need mold removal. Might have to call the HAZMAT unit." - LOL love it!
If you want an action packed, fun, quirky, quick read - THIS IS IT!
Thank you Partners in Crime for sending me this book for my honest review!
