Synopsis: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.

"Student Bodies" by Susan Israel is the kind of book that you should not read alone. It is full of suspense and mystery. Delilah Price has just seen a young girl fall front of a train on her way to her first day of work as a substitute teacher. Why and how did this happen? Was it murder or an horrible accident? Delilah gets to work and finds out that the girl went to the school where she is starting to teach as a substitute. As days go by Delilah is getting more and more concerned. There seems to be a huge problem at the school but everyone is too secretive. Just as it seems it cannot get any worse she puts herself in harms way. She has to stop trying to find out what is really going on. But can she? Is it too late. Is the killer after her or someone else? Will she figure it out in time? I give this book a 4/5. I was given this book for a review and these are my opinions.
