Three years ago, Sophie Mercer discovered that she was a witch. It's gotten her into a few scrapes. Her non-gifted mother has been as supportive as possible, consulting Sophie's estranged father--an elusive European warlock--only when necessary. But when Sophie attracts too much human attention for a prom-night spell gone horribly wrong, it's her dad who decides her punishment: exile to Hex Hall, an isolated reform school for wayward Prodigium, a.k.a. witches, faeries, and shapeshifters.
By the end of her first day among fellow freak-teens, Sophie has quite a scorecard: three powerful enemies who look like supermodels, a futile crush on a gorgeous warlock, a creepy tagalong ghost, and a new roommate who happens to be the most hated person and only vampire student on campus. Worse, Sophie soon learns that a mysterious predator has been attacking students, and her only friend is the number-one suspect.
As a series of blood-curdling mysteries starts to converge, Sophie prepares for the biggest threat of all: an ancient secret society determined to destroy all Prodigium, especially her.
This book is the the first book in the Hex Hall series by Rachel Hawkins. It starts off with a girl named Sophie who gets in trouble for casting a love spell that goes horribly wrong and gets her sent to a school called Hex Hall for kids who get in trouble for using there magic publicly. From there on, she finds herself having a few enemies and has to figure out a way to help her friend of a crime she's accused of and to learn about who she truly is.
This was the best witch book I have ever read! Besides Harry Potter of course. LOL This book had one adventure after another and kept me wanting more. Page after page something different had occurred, which always kept me in suspense. I loved the characters. Sophie was amazing, I really liked her character. Archer?! What the frickin' heck!!!! I really like him, even though so and so happened. (not going to spoil it). And the ending, with Alice....Whoa! And the ending with Sophie on the last page....Whoa!
Overall, I really enjoyed this book. It was fun and definitely a page turner! Recommend to everyone. Can't wait to read Demonglass..
