Xanthe Fox can't wait to turn thirteen, but as the big day arrives her world starts to fall apart. Set-up at school for something she didn't do, it seems her age-old enemy, Kelly, is making trouble for her...and as things escalate, even her best friend Saul starts to doubt her innocence. With the school threatening to expel her, and mysterious glowing Xs appearing in front of her eyes, Xanthe turns to Grandma Alice for help. But what the old lady tells her will change Xanthe's life for ever...

4.0 out of 5 stars Loved the book! 7 Oct 2012
Xanthe Fox is having one terrible week. It's the first day of the new term and as Xanthe counts down to her thirteenth birthday, terrible things begin to happen. Usually a good student, she finds herself in trouble with her teachers, friends and headmaster. Xanthe's sure the pranks are being caused by her arch nemesis Kelly Snier.

As if getting into trouble at school was bad enough, Xanthe also starts seeing glowing Xs behind her eyes. Her best friends thinks she should get her eyes checked, her parents are disappointed by her behaviour and even her crush doesn't stand by her side. With only her great-grandmother left to trust, Xanthe learns that her family's got secrets of own that will change her life forever.

Writing for this age group can be a difficult task, but Goodwin is talented at creating characters with voices that are true and relatable. Xanthe Fox is a wonderful role model and the book is an excellent depiction of academic life in the UK (which is extremely fun as an American to read). The language is brilliant, creating a story that fits in well with its audience. The secrets are cleverly hidden creating tension throughout, making it an easy page-turner. A coming of age story with a supernatural twist, The Hex Factor is the perfect spooky read this October.

5.0 out of 5 stars Hexellent New Book 20 Sep 2012
From the moment I started to read Harriet Goodwin's latest book 'The Hex Factor' I was hooked. Harriet has written another wonderful book and totally different from the other two book's, a completely new adventure. It had it all excitement, clues, possible romance, enemies, intrigue and suspense. This is a wonderful read and will not disappoint. Brilliant! Countdown to the sequel....

5.0 out of 5 stars Great read - hope it's the first in a series 24 Aug 2012
Another great story from Harriet Goodwin. Another book I had to read from beginning to end in one sitting! The characters are very realistic (as is the depiction of life at school), and the story pulls you along. This would be a good read for any child from 10-13 or so (it's not as scary as Gravenhunger, Harriet's previous book). I wish I'd had a great-grandmother like Grandma Alice. Xanthe is a great character, and I hope she has lots and lots more adventures - could this be the first book in a series please?
