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 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.

So far I'm enjoying Hex Hall.  The writing style is really cute, and I've found myself laughing frequently.  Sophie is an adorably sarcastic character, and if you know me, you know sarcasm is my native tongue!  The only complaints I have are:  Sophie seems really smart, so it bothers me that she is immediately attracted to a guy who insults her and treats her badly.  And, the amount of little cuss words is a bit excessive for my taste.  I think it makes Sophie sound a little trashy. Just my opinion :)

Keep Reading!!!
