Richard “Tex” McKenna's graduating high school. It’s a shame he doesn't have a clue what comes next. There's no time to think now, either. Being a male witch makes Tex a ginormous supernatural trouble magnet. There's an angry witch in pursuit and a maniac in a Grim Reaper's costume on the loose. Why did the cheerleader really kill herself? Is the heinous Clarendon Baptist Church a front for something more sinister? Elspeth’s back, too, trouble trailing on her booted heels. If Tex and his friends don't figure it out soon, Tex won't have to worry about life after high school. (Goodreads)
I've reviewed the first two books in this series, Tex the Witch Boy, and Tex and the Gangs of Suburbia.
I've immensely enjoyed West's series of Tex and his band of friends as they traveled through high school and navigated some seriously crazy situations. This last book was an entertaining and full of the twists, turns, and great characters that I've come to expect. I still completely adore Olivia, Tex's girlfriend, and the two of them were still the hilarious and cute couple. The situations they get into during their senior year are more serious and definitely make the reader think about the real-life corollaries of what's being portrayed by some of the antics of the church and their beliefs. That, and dealing with the issues that Tex has to face in terms of what to do with his future, coupled with his witch responsibilities, were a perfect mix. I was quite sad to reach the end of the book, but it was a satisfying ending and I know I have Elspeth, the Living Dead Girl to go read next :)
Have you had a chance to read any of Stuart's series?
