Description from GoodReads:

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.

My Review:
Having magical powers is not all fun and games. That is what Sophie learns after her well intentioned love spell goes terribly wrong. As punishment she is sent to Hex-Hall, a reform school dedicated to teaching Prodigium (magical creatures) how to properly use their powers.

Sophie gets paired with the only vampire in the school and she begins to crush on the boyfriend of the leader of a group of girls that not only can make Sophie's life at Hex Hall very difficult but also seem to have a secret agenda. To make matters worst students begin to die and the already hard magical life gets dangerous.

A great start to a this series. Sophie is a fun, witty character that makes you laugh. This quick paced story is a great read for anyone that enjoys paranormal magical school drama. It will leave you wanting more.

My Rating:
