Review 'Billy Bobble and the Witch Hunt' by R.S. Melette

For Billy Bobble and his best friend Suzy Quinofski, it's hard enough to be thirteen and in high school without having to fight evil at every turn, but it's even harder to do that while they try to get their memory back after a magic spell cast by a villainous physics teacher. Even without their memories, Billy and Suzy know something is not right. Their textbooks have been changed, their parents aren't acting right, their teachers are afraid, and Billy and Suzy are in each other's dreams. But when their history teacher is fired during class for answering a question from one of those dreams, Billy and Suzy get their memories back. Soon they realize that evil has been unleashed upon the human race, and only the two of them, their friends, and their families can stop it.

My Review:

Last year I read the first Billy Bobble novel called ‘Billy Bobble Makes a Magic Wand’. I really loved that book, so when the author R.S. Mellette asked me if I wanted to read the next book in the Billy Bobble series I immediately said yes. The Billy Bobble series can easily be read as a children’s book, but if you ask me it’s also a great read for grown-ups.

In ‘Billy Bobble and the Witch Hunt’ we meet Billy and his best friend Suzy again. Billy and Suzy are still the only thirteen year olds in high school. And if that is not hard enough, now they are also having weird dreams and something strange is definitely going on with their memory. Everything is changing and not for the good. And soon Billy and Suzy are the ones who need to save human kind from evil.

Just as with the first book I loved reading about Billy Bobble and his best friend Suzy. Billy and Suzy are just such fun characters that I love reading about them. Being the youngest and smartest people at school isn’t always easy. And reading about their lives and adventures is really fun.
‘Billy Bobble and the Witch Hunt’ is a thrilling story and right from the beginning there is a lot happening. You definitely have to keep up. But I loved every single page.

Although this book also contains some talk about physics and other complicated stuff I know nothing about, I never felt like I missed important stuff. I enjoyed getting inside the head of those brilliant children. There is more than enough going on to keep this book an interesting read.

If you ask me R.S. Mellette did another great job with this Billy Bobble series. The characters are fun and memorable and I think readers from all ages will enjoy this one.
