Curse of the Broomstaff (Janitors, #3) by Tyler Whitesides

A secret society of Janitors with wizard-like powers continue their battle, and now, the stakes are even higher. The Bureau of Educational Maintenance is after Alan Zumbro and this time they mean business - deadly business. Spencer, Daisy, and their little team of rebels must find the source of all magical Glop and destroy it before it can destroy the world as we know it. No small task with the BEM and their monster toxites at their heels. It's a wild and dangerous ride as they follow the trail of clues all the way to the hiding place of the mysterious aurans: guardians of a secret landfill. What they discover there will change the way

Spencer sees himself, not to mention the fate of the rebels.

My Review Curse of the Broomstaff by Tyler Whitesides

This is book 3 in the series and the only one that I have read. I expect that if you had read the firsts two books it would be better, but I was able to understand the book by itself.
I have to agree with the author that this is a very trashy book. It deals with a dump truck, part of it is in a landfill even one of the good guys likes to dive into trash cans. This setting is gross I am glad that this book does not smell. Kids probably have more fun with the settings. Like food fight, getting flushed down a toilet and dump with trash monsters.
Besides the yuck factors you smile a lot while reading the Broomstaff.

The characters are well written. Makes you want to root for them to save education. Spencer and Daisy are in elementary school. They leave school because Spencer saw a vision and he needs to let his father know. They are caught and are suspended for the rest of the month.
They are part of rebels to help save education from toxites who make children fall asleep in school, and not want to learn.
Their are wizards, some good some bad. Their weapons are janitors items that have been magic, like brooms, plungers and air freshners.

The book is full of action, fights with different creatures, using magic. Lots of good and bad. Some you are not sure who to trust. It is a fun book to read. Fast paced never dull. It also has some good messages in it.
I would read the next book in the series or even catch up on the two that came before.
I was given this ebook and asked to give honest review of by NetGalley and Shadow Mountain Publishing.
