Three years ago, Sophie Mercer discovered that she is a witch. Her non-gifted mother has been supportive, consulting Sophie’s estranged father—a 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 exiles her to “Hex Hall”, an isolated reform school for wayward Prodigium, a.k.a. witches, fairies, and shape-shifters.By the end of her first day, Sophie has three new enemies, a futile crush on a warlock, a tagalong ghost, and a vampire roommate. Worse, Sophie soon learns that an unknown predator has been attacking students. As a series of blood-curdling mysteries converges, Sophie prepares for the biggest threat of all: an ancient secret society determined to destroy all Prodigium, especially her.

It takes a heluva lot for me to say that I have enjoyed a YA. I haven't expected to like Hex Hall at all. To be honest I am still more than a little surprised that it managed to sneak up on me in the way it did, considering it had most of the usual cliches that make YA intolerable.I will have to cha...
I really liked this book. At first I thought it would be this horrendous Twilight-Harry Potter mash-up, but it definitely was its own story. I really like our protag, Sophie. She's sassy and independent, two of my favorite traits in my female leads. She was always upfront and honest and never hid he...
